St. Louis County Recognizes Volunteer Tax Preparers
As part of St. Louis County’s Sesquicentennial year, the County is presenting a Volunteer Recognition Award to volunteer tax preparers on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 9:30 AM at the Duluth Courthouse as part of its regular St. Louis County Board meeting.
Second District Commissioner Steve O’Neil will honor volunteer tax preparers from AARP, Community Action Duluth, UMD, CHUM and US Bank. In 2005, 1,071 tax returns were prepared for low income people, with 1,600 prepared in 2006. Over $2,000,000 in total State and Federal refunds were achieved in 2006. In addition, customers were able to obtain their credit reports, open bank accounts and be screened for benefits eligibility.
Please join the St. Louis County Board in thanking these volunteer tax preparers for the gift of their expertise.
