Free tax assistance program

The Oasis is offering FREE tax assistance during the 2009 filing season. The senior center will offer electronic filing, which improves accuracy and ensures each return is accepted by the IRS in a timely manner. Tax volunteers at the senior center are trained in the TaxWise software but are not trained tax professionals. The guidelines prohibit the center from completing tax forms that involve the sale of property, business earnings, depreciation, stock sales, farm income, and other income or deductions that are not typical in nature; please seek the assistance of a tax professional. Services at the senior center will be available Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Please call 732-6132 for an appointment.
