Free tax assistance available

O ne of the most dreaded times of the year has returned: Tax season.

The Internal Revenue Service began accepting and processing tax returns yesterday, but for many the prospect of filing their taxes is a daunting task, especially if they do it themselves.

Fortunately, there are several resources available to local residents that will help them file their taxes free of charge.

Trained community volunteers who are certified by the IRS are scheduling appointments for free income tax preparation at several locations throughout Washington and Warren Counties.

The service is available to families and individuals with a total income of $49,000 or less and individuals who are unable to prepare their own returns.

Both federal and state returns can be filed electronically as part of the service. Filing online will allow folks to receive their refunds in half the time.

To make an appointment, call Washington County at 1-800-211-5128.

Cornell Cooperative Extension is sponsoring the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program on Feb. 8 and March 22 at SUNY Adirondack.

Appointments will be offered 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the campus cafeteria. Appointments can be made by calling the Warren County branch of Cornell Cooperative Extension at 668-4881 or Head Start at 793-3624.
