Free tax help still available
Income tax time is here! Free tax preparation is being offered at the Grand Coulee Senior Center again this year. Volunteers trained in cooperation with IRS and AARP will be available every Tuesday, thru April 8, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Some volunteers have been certified to assist taxpayers with health savings accounts.
This service is available to anyone with low or middle income. You do not have to be seniors or members of the senior center to take advantage of this free help. However, special attention is given to those 60 or older. Free e-filing is also available.
Taxpayers need to bring: A copy of last year’s tax return, social security cards, or other official documentation showing social security numbers, for themselves and all dependants. It is VERY important to bring social security cards for dependants to make sure the correct number is entered on the tax form. Also, bring proof of salary, interest, pensions, social security or any other sources of income.
For a faster refund, bring a sample check so your refund can be directly deposited to your bank account.
