Following the success of the first tax assistance program held in February, F.I.S.H. (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel has teamed up again to with The Voluntary Tax Assistance Program (Vita) and F.I.S.H. has added another session to provide free assistance to complete your 2010 Income Tax Forms on Friday, March 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the F.I.S.H. 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. Each appointment usually last between one and two hours.

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.
