Taxaide Program Thanks Community

To The Editor:

On behalf of the Chambersburg Taxaide Program, we would like to thank everyone who helped make this another successful year for us. In the Mc- Connellsburg area, we served more than 350 clients, e-filed more than 300 federal and 250 state returns, assisted with more than 175 requests for property tax and rent rebates and served more than 35 people who were guests of the Hopewell Senior Center.

Our sincere appreciation goes to the Farmers and Merchants Bank for the use of its space and facilities at the Fulton Theatre. We were able to maintain a central location with adequate parking and easy access for our clients.

We feel our service is a muchneeded service in this community. Our staff is made up of strictly volunteers; our equipment is either donated or is purchased out of funds derived from donations; and our pay comes only from the satisfaction of helping people. This is a most gratifying task performed by people who are willing to give back to the community and supported by the organization mentioned above.

If anyone is interested in helping with the Taxaide Program, please feel free to contact us. We are always looking for new volunteers as tax counselors, greeters and/or technical assistants.
