Tax services to be available at senior center; details yet to be finalized

By Osage County Senior Center Director Byron Jordan

Lots of folks have been calling about tax preparation assistance and the LIEAP program. The Osage County Senior Center plans on hosting an AARP Tax Aid Service for 2013 returns. However, until AARP provides us with dated materials and the service details, we are not able to take reservations. Feel free to call in once in a while to see if we have a date yet (785-528-4906), but until we get the official notification from AARP there is nothing further we can do.

The area agency on aging will be assisting with Homestead Tax filings again this year, but they will be doing that by mail. We have the forms that you would need, but once you fill out the form you will be dealing directly with the East Central Kansas Area Agency on Aging. Again, you are welcome to stop by the center (604 Market St., Osage City) or call us for more information on that.

The area agency on aging is also your resource for Low Income Energy Assistance Program processing. We can provide more details on that, too.

Don’t forget to put it on your calendar: the nutrition site is putting on a bean soup supper fundraiser the evening of Jan. 23. And, our cabin fever relief lunch trip signup sheet, set for Jan. 29, is filling up, so call or stop by soon to reserve your seat on the bus.
