I volunteer as a Tax-Aide preparer at Tullis Library. The hours there are Tuesday and Thursday from 9-2, beginning this coming Tuesday, February 5th thru Thursday, April 11th. Two caveats: The doors at Tullis don't open til 9, and after doing this for 9 years, I can tell you that the first day is always a circus. I wouldn't be in a hurry to show up on the first day.
As I predicted, Tuesday the 5th was a disaster. Thursday things went much better, the hardware "behaved" and more taxpayers were served. I think the rest of the tax season will probably go smoothly, so I feel comfortable telling you to, "Come on down!" We look forward to seeing you there.
