Trained Volunteers Can Help You Prepare Taxes

It’s almost always a good thing to start filing your income taxes at the start of each year. It’s even better if you get lucky and give your bank account a nice little push by getting a refund from the federal or state government.

Let’s face it; tax time is always a stressful time of the year, not to mention frustrating. It seems like the methods of how to go about it are always changing. It’s always a hassle to find out if you have filed everything correctly, and if you have fully maximized your return. We all want to save a few bucks by doing taxes ourselves; however, dealing with your taxes on your own may cost you in the big picture.

During this tax season, know that you have the option of having your taxes prepared for no charge at all by trained volunteers. This will save you time, money and the stress of having to deal with your taxes on your own. This is the 5th consecutive year that volunteers have offered this very convenient option, so take advantage of it.

There are some rules set for the volunteers. They may assist senior citizens with homestead credit and any individual with an annual gross income of less than $58,000 in filing their state and/or federal income taxes. These volunteers are only able to help in filing personal income taxes only. There are not able to assist in preparing any other type of taxes for you, as it’s part of their policy.
