Oldsters, Tax Preparers, and You

If you've read very many pieces written by me, you may well know that my most highly detested song is, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year."

No it isn't! Not only is it dark and dreary, cold and windy, so-forth-and-so-on, it is followed without a breath by Tax Season.

And speaking of taxes, if you are an oldster in the U.S. you can likely find some sort of free service to help you fill out and submit your taxes.

For the last several years, there has been a group in my county that volunteers under the A.A.R.P. Now I am not a member of that organization. You don't have to be a member for them to assist you in this way.

After waiting for an available assistant for perhaps 20 minutes, I've found them fast, efficient, and highly knowledgeable. And they ask each other if there is a ticklish issue, so it's a kind of think-tank with them. Remember: whoever you get to do your taxes, you are the one held accountable. So Be Careful!

It's good that there are people willing to help. I detest tax forms. volunteering to help someone else do theirs would not be my idea of fun.
