For the past few years my mother has been going to her local library for free tax preparation but this service has become another casualty of the Covid-19 epidemic.
She set me the task of finding an alternative and I am pleased to announce that the Gulfport FL Senior Center is offering tax prep by appointment starting February 15. When my mother called 727 851-6591 to make an appointment she was disappointed to reach a recorded message with instructions to leave name and phone number. Will keep you posted if they call her back.
For seniors with computer skills, I recommend TurboTax. It took me about an hour and a fee of $40 to secure my Early bird spot in the refund queue; the IRS starts processing refunds on February 12!
