Qualifying older adults who would like help with their tax returns can take advantage of a free opportunity.
LIFE Senior Services’ annual tax assistance program will be available through April 15.
To qualify, individuals must be 60 or older with an annual household income of $57,000 or less.
The assistance is offered on site at the agency’s central office, 5950 E. 31st St. in Tulsa.
Appointments are required and can be scheduled by calling 918-664-9000, ext. 1189
The number of people in the facility will be limited to allow for appropriate social distancing.
“The program falls right in line with our mission of helping older adults maintain their independence,” LIFE CEO Eileen Bradshaw said.
“Even individuals with relatively simple tax returns will often pay $300 to $400 for professional tax preparation,” she said.
“or seniors on a tight budget, $300 could mean the difference in whether or not they can also pay for both their heating bill and prescriptions that month.”
LIFE has been IRS-approved to offer free tax assistance since 2014.
