By Staff | Feb 1, 2011

F.I.S.H. (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel has teamed up again this year with The Voluntary Tax Assistance Program (VITA) and will be providing free assistance to complete your 2010 Income Tax Forms on Friday, Feb. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the FISH Walk-In Center, located at 1630 Periwinkle Way.

Tax preparation will be provided by a team of IRS trained certified volunteers and is free of charge. Please plan to bring all pertinent tax papers, a photo ID and a Social Security Card for all taxpayers and all dependents.

This service is available to those whose total income is less than $50,000 for the 2010 calendar year. Last year, during this session at F.I.S.H., one of our Sanibel participants was assisted in filing the largest tax refund that the Lee Country Vita Program had every successfully achieved.

Call Christine Swiersz at the F.I.S.H. Walk-In Center at 472-4775 to make your individual appointment for this service, which will last between one and two hours.
