As the April 15 deadline to file federal income tax returns looms on the horizon, one group of Big Spring volunteers is doing its part to help local residents prepare their returns and beat Uncle Sam's annual countdown.
Part of the annual AARP Tax-Aide program, program coordinator Gloria Hopkins said she and her band of volunteers are ready to continue filing returns Monday at the Big Spring Senior Center.
“The AARP program provides free federal tax preparation assistance to people who cannot afford professional tax help, such as seniors, people with disabilities, those that don’t speak English and people with low-to-moderate income,” Hopkins said. “AARP volunteers explain many special tax credits and deductions and how people may claim them on their tax returns. These volunteers help people complete their returns, right down to any refunds that may be due them.”
