BANGOR — Beal College will offer free tax assistance for all middle and lower income taxpayers, age 60 and older, from Feb. 5 through April 11. The service is being provided by the college’s accounting students.
“The complexity of the tax code and forms can be intimidating,” said Judy Getchell, coordinator of the Tax Assistance program. “We anticipate, based upon the response we’ve already received, that a large number of area seniors will take advantage of this free assistance.”
During this two-month period, assistance will be offered in Room 15 at the college on 629 Main St. in Bangor on Thursdays from 6-8 p.m., Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
