Tax Preparation Options for 2012
Senior Neighbors will no longer be offering assistance with taxes. However, they have compiled a list of resources older adults can contact for help with tax preparation. Senior Neighbors’ outreach workers will help seniors problem solve tax issues through appropriate referrals, like they do with many other concerns. To contact Senior Neighbors, call (616) 459-6019 or visit www.seniorneighbors.org
H&R Block is willing to go to senior housing sites and senior centers and provide tax services like Senior Neighbors has done for the past several years. They are willing to assist the seniors using the same suggested donation schedule Senior Neighbors used last year. The contact person at H&R Block is Carl Underhill. He has been volunteering with Senior Neighbors the last couple of years helping with its tax program, so he is familiar with how the program has operated. Carl can be reached at 616-669-2081 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
AARP will continue to operate their senior tax program at the Baxter Community Center. They have the capacity to help many seniors with their tax forms at the Baxter Center and can be reached during tax season at 616-456-8593. Phil Quist is the contact at Baxter.
