Free Tax Preparation in Olanta!

April 15 will be here soon! Get your taxes done at the Dr. John M. Thomason Public Library when a specialist from SC Thrive prepares state and federal returns from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7. For the 2014 tax year, SC Thrive counselors, which use The Benefit Bank of South Carolina online resources, will provide tax assistance to low- and moderate-income wage earners at no cost. Those filing single with income of $65,000 or less and those filing married jointly with income of $95,000 or less are eligible for the assistance. With direct deposit, clients can receive their refund in as few as seven to ten days. During the filing process, counselors can also identify benefits that clients may be eligible for. These include health care coverage, child care subsidies, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps). To make an appointment, please call 843-396-4287 or visit the library.
