This service is provided by volunteers who undergo a refresher trainer every year to stay current on the on-going changes in tax regulations. During Feb through April 15, the hall is setup as a mini work camp with tables, laptops, and printers to handle the influx of seniors needing this valuable service. It is a first come-first-served event in which people can sign in and wait for service. We have wireless capability which allows the tax preparers to transmit the returns electronically. This professional group of volunteers completes well over 200 returns annually.
The tax preparers enjoy offering this service because they know how much it is truly appreciated by seniors on a limited budget. Seniors are protective of their financial matters and want to feel they can trust the person doing this service. The Center is proud to have dedicated volunteer professionals who provide this important role in helping seniors.
