Posted on Thursday, December 19, 2013 at 7:19 am

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 dedicated 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.
