Learn to prepare taxes and make a difference in Lincoln County at the same time.

How can you make a difference? Help your community in preparing taxes free of charge by becoming a volunteer with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program.

You will receive training to help provide free tax help to assist anyone whose income is under $51,000 and who needs assistance preparing his or her tax return. Nearly 92,000 people nationwide said yes to making a difference during the 2013-filing season and prepared over 3.3 million returns at thousands of tax sites nationwide.

There are two of these sites right here in Lincoln County utilizing trained dedi-cated volunteers. Returns will be prepared at the Fayetteville/Lincoln County Senior Citizens Center and South Central Human Resource Agency from late January through April 15. For more information, call 433-7182, extension 130.
