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.
