ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Have you filed your taxes yet? SOWEGA Council on aging wants to offer free tax preparation to you. Volunteers do the work and file your taxes.

Anyone can use the service, though it's targeted for those 60 and older.

Volunteer Larry Sellers says many times, a person has lost their spouse, who used to do the paperwork and is lost as to how to proceed.

"They're looking like, 'please help me,' and when they walk out of here and they're happy and you tell them to go ho, how the check will be in the mail, the expression on their face is just priceless,"  said Sellers.

Marilyn Westbrook RSVP Coordinator said, "It's overwhelming to see that volunteer go out and make a difference, because they make differences."

 If you want to have your taxes prepared, or want to volunteer, call the Council on Aging at 229-432-1131.
