Volunteers needed to help with tax returns

Bridges Community Action Partnership, in partnership with the IRS, will offer volunteer tax preparation services in Logan County. Volunteers are needed to learn to prepare tax returns for low-to-moderate income families in their communities.

The IRS sponsors the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs. Volunteers for those programs prepared 3.7 million tax returns this past filing season. In Logan County, volunteers saved local taxpayers over $46,000 in tax preparation fees and refunded over $391,000 to local residents.

Volunteers work just a few hours a week, usually from mid-January through the end of the tax filing season in April. No prior experience is required and training is provided.

To learn more, contact Wendy Perkins at Community Action at 937-642-4986.
