Our Trusty AARP Tax Volunteers Are Back:  It’s Tax Time

It’s time to start gathering your paperwork for your tax returns for 2013.  Beginning, Tuesday, February 3 AARP volunteers will be here each Tuesday and Thursday morning in February and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings in March and April.  These knowledgeable men and women are trained each year on the updated tax laws.  They can help you prepare your state and federal forms or to review those that you have prepared.

To qualify for assistance with your taxes your income must be $50,000 or less, and you cannot own a small business or a rental property.

Appointments are a must!!  You can sign up for a 9, or 10:30 AM appointment.  Just call us at the Center.  The last day for appointments will be Tuesday, April 14.  Please try not to wait until the last minute.  Sometimes a complicated return may require a second appointment.

When you come, please bring a copy of the 2013 forms and all appropriate financial statements (Social Security Year End Statement, end of the year bank statements, stock holder’s statements, end of the year pension statements, etc.), as well as a copy of your year 2013 return.  Having all of this information with you will help everything move much more smoothly.  The Wayne Senior Center greatly appreciates your donations for this service.

Winter Weather Blues

So far this season we’ve been hit with many pesky ice storms, none of them truly terrible, just enough to be problematic.

We do our very best to keep our Center open in inclement weather.  Most of the time the Center is closed if the Radnor Schools are closed.  However, it doesn’t always happen that way.  Our best advice is to listen to KYW Radio.  Radnor School District is Number 457.  If you’re not sure what is happening, just give us a call at 610-688-6246 before you venture out.  It’s a good idea to call anytime the weather is somewhat questionable (snow, sleet, ice or freezing rain).  The decision to open our doors is generally made by 6:30 AM.  There will always be a message on our voice mail system when you call.  The date will be announced and our message will tell you if we are open, closed, or possibly opening later in the day.

Please understand that these decisions are not made lightly.  Your safety and that of our staff and volunteers are always our utmost concern!  We are truly sorry for any inconvenience our closing may cause you.
