TAX PREPARATION AND ASSISTANCE TO BE OFFERED ON DAUFUSKIE
AARP-Foundation Volunteer Tax Assistance program will again provide trained and certified volunteers to help local residents prepare and e-file their state and federal tax returns for the 2012 fiscal year. There is no cost for this service. It is intended for low to moderate tax payers of any age, but with preference given to those 60 years of age or older. The Volunteers can help with a variety of tax situations applicable to these tax payers, but there are some things they are not permitted to deal with such as sale of a home, self-employed business income when expenses exceed $10,000, and other complex returns. Call below for more information.
The volunteers will be available on Saturdays March 1 and April 12, and possibly one other Saturday, if there is sufficient interest and APPOINTMENTS ARE MADE. Service will be by appointment only, no drop-ins can be helped. There is drop-in assistance on Hilton Head by AARP Volunteers on Tuesday afternoons at the public library and on Thursday mornings at the Senior Center. here is also a VITA site for low income tax payers on Hilton Head.
Tax payers will need to bring a photo ID, their Social Security Cards, last year’s tax return (if filed), and all relevant documents to their appointment. Tax forms will be prepared and e-filed at that time if all the correct information is provided.
For additional information and/or to schedule an appointment, please contact Pat Dempsey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave your name and phone number on her message machine at 686-6270.
