Free Seniors Tax Preparation

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For the 29th year in a row, the SOWEGA Council On Aging will offer free tax preparation help for seniors, but you need to sign up soon.

The IRS and the Retired Citizens Volunteer Program are sponsoring the program.

Last year they helped 600 people.

Specialists say this year's tax returns have changes that many people could have questions about.

"The law is changed. You may not have needed to come last year but will this year. We have a new ruled this year that you've got to prove you have insurance," said Tax Aid Coordinator Laura McKinney.

You can call 432-1124 to make an appointment.

Volunteers will prepare tax returns from February 2nd to April 14th on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 to 3.
