Local AARP Foundation volunteers have completed another successful tax season. 

In partnership with the Coweta Public Library System, the Volunteers completed more than 820 federal and state returns that were electronically filed. The service was provided free.

The volunteers assisted taxpayers two days a week from Feb. 1- April 13 at the Powell Library and Central Library. The volunteers were trained and certified by the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program.
