LUM Income Tax Assistance Program in Full Swing

 LUM Income Tax Assistance Program started ontax Tuesday and is in full swing!

Since 2002, the LUM Income Tax Assistance Program has offered free tax help to people in Tippecanoe County with low-to-moderate income, senior citizens, persons with disability, those who have limited English proficiency, and others who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. At LUM, taxpayers get one-on-one help from IRS-certified volunteers who prepare their taxes for them at no charge.

LUM would not be able to offer this service without the skilled, trained volunteers who make this vital LUM program such a success each year. The 2015 LUM Tax Assistance Program is led by Sandra Dunn-El. Call 765.423.2691 for more information. If you wish to make an investment in the LUM Tax Assistance program, click HERE.
