AARP has volunteers who do taxes for low income, disabled, and seniors at
our library and file the returns online.

Subject: [MELIBS-L] tax help in high school libraries?

Hello all!

I had a Thought the other day - thought I'd tap the Collective Brain for

Lots of my high school students are filing their first tax returns this
year.  I can remember how scary that was to me as a high school kid with a
few thousand dollars in income, even though the 1040 EZ is pretty
straightforward.  I know public libraries sometimes have trained volunteers
come in to help those with lower income file their returns.  I have asked a
few of my working students and they seem very enthusiastic about having
help.  Has anyone ever hosted one of those volunteers in their high school
library?  Does anyone know how I might contact whomever provides help?  Can
you all think of a roadblock I'm not thinking of (I'm new at this)?  By all
means, please give me your input, positive or otherwise!
