Tax help available for south county residents

Volunteers of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office working at the south county substation are offering a free tax consultation service to senior citizens over the age of 60, and to low-income families on public assistance.

The free service, sponsored by AARP and coordinated through Douglas County Sheriff's Volunteer Angie McCrackin, is available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Monday, starting Feb. 4 and running to April 14.

Due to the expected high volume of residents wishing to use this service, people should schedule an appointment at least three days in advance.

Appointments can be scheduled by calling the south county substation at 266-1028.

All volunteers providing this service are federally certified tax consultants, having received their certification through the Internal Revenue Service. The average consultation takes approximately two-to-four hours.

Bring all required documentation.

Required IRS Tax forms will be provided by the volunteers providing the service at the sub-station.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office south county sub-station is at 1550 Highland Way, near the intersection of Highway 395 and State Route 208 in Holbrook Junction.
