Council on Aging Offers Tax Help

Income Tax assistance is available from the Red River Council on Aging.  Executive Director Liz Cannon said they have been approved site for VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) and Tax-Aide, two IRS sponsored programs that provide free tax preparation for those who earn less than $66,000.

Cannon told The Journal their help is open to the public by appointment only.  That is due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Call 318-932-5721 to schedule the appointment on Tuesday or Thursday between 1:00 and 2:30 pm.

There is no age requirement to get the tax help.  VITA offers free tax preparation regardless of age.
