2013 senior tax assistance scheduled

WAYNE COUNTY, PA — The Wayne County Area Agency on Aging announces the schedule for the annual Senior Tax Assistance Program at the Honesdale and Hamlin Senior Centers. The AARP volunteers will again assist Wayne County’s senior citizens with 2013 Federal tax returns. There is no charge for these services performed by well-trained volunteer tax counselors. Appointments are necessary; no walk-ins. Call 570/253-4262. Tax assistance will be cancelled if schools are closed due to inclement weather.

Seniors are asked to bring only “simple tax returns.” You must bring with you a copy of last year’s tax returns and all tax information that you have received in order to file your 2013 tax returns. These documents include your Social Security 1099's, wage and earnings statements (W-2), pensions, IRA’s, interests, and dividends information. Homeowners should bring 2013 county/city and school tax statements.

If you’re filing Federal Income Taxes, dates for the Honesdale Senior Center are on Thursdays from February 6 to April 3. Dates for the Hamlin Senior Center are on Mondays from February 3 to April 7.

If you are filing State Income Tax only, dates for the Honesdale Senior Center are Friday, February 14; Monday. March 10; and Friday, March 28; and at the Hamlin Senior Center on Wednesday, February 26; Friday, March 7; and Wednesday, March 12. Call 570/253-4262 to schedule your appointment.
