As the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide District Coordinator for Racine County, I would like to thank our 37 volunteers for their assistance in preparing over 1,750 returns from Feb. 1 through April 11. Over 1.9 million dollars in federal and state refunds were returned to the taxpayers.
I would also like to thank the following organizations that provide facilities and support for this valuable service: the City of Racine for the use of Dr. John Bryant Community and Humble Park Community Centers; Graham Public Library; Love, Inc.; the Caledonia-Mount Pleasant Memorial Park Board; and the Village of Sturtevant. Several people, along with the Volunteer Center of Racine, also assisted in making appointments for the taxpayers.
Thanks again to everyone for another successful year in assisting our low- and moderate-income citizens and returning many dollars back to the community.
