Our AARP Tax Assistance Volunteers will be back again this February to assist Seniors with their tax returns. We will begin to accept names right after the New Years. However, as noted, the volunteers will not begin until February. The normal routine is that one signs up at the Senior Center, the volunteers give us dates that they are available and the Director or the COA Secretary will call people to set up appointments. The office then sends out a confirmation of your appointment and a listing of what documentation you need to bring with you.
A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year Is Wished to All. God Bless America.
