Tax help to be available next week

February 6, 2013 - Rob Weaver
The Internal Revenue Service has begun accepting returns. But what if you need help filing one? You can get help in Tiffin, where Volunteer Income Tax Assistance is to be available beginning next week.

Trained counselors with VITA are to offer free tax counseling to elderly, handicapped or low-income people 6-9 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays at Seneca County Commission on Aging, 10 Riverside Drive, beginning next week. (The service was to start this week, but was delayed by technical difficulties). No appointments are needed. Help is to be available through April 15.

Also, people age 55 and older can get help at Tiffin-Seneca Public Library, but appointments are required. Sessions are planned for noon to 5 p.m. Feb. 13, Feb. 27, March 13, March 27 and April 3 in the Junior Home Room. Call (419) 447-1841 to schedule a meeting.

At either location, bring W-2 forms, any 1099 forms, Social Security cards, real estate tax stubs and any amount received as a stimulus payment.

If you plan on handling the chore yourself, the library has city, state and federal tax forms available. While there, ask about filing a return electronically.
