Roswell SeniorNet Group Helps Make Tax Season Less Painful, More Profitable For Hundreds of Area Households
The tax season this year was less painful, and less expensive, for hundreds of
Roswell-area households thanks to the generous services offered by the SeniorNet
classroom at the Roswell Adult Recreation Center.
According to Joyce Mortison, AARP Tax-Aide Local Site Coordinator, the
cooperation of Roswell’s SeniorNet group helped AARP Tax-Aide offer free tax
assistance to a total of 213 area households, amounting to a savings of
$110-$250 for each tax filer. In all, the six AARP tax counselers completed
207 Federal and Georgia State tax returns, plus five amended returns.
Ninety-three percent of the returns were e-filed for quicker refunds.
Said Ms. Mortison: “In these difficult economic times it is gratifying to be
able to help this many households obtain free tax service, and the SeniorNet
group once again provided friendly, knowledgeable assistance with very efficient
Roger Ignatius, Georgia District I Tax-Aide Technology Coordinator added that
“the Roswell SeniorNet facilities and hardware more than met our needs and the
classroom hardware was actually better than what is provided by the IRS.”
