E-filing is officially open, and tax season is officially underway! The Mobile Express celebrated the opening of the e-file portals by heading over to a tax clinic at The Work Station in The Plains in Athens County.
Thanks to John Tyma and the staff at The Work Station, we had a fantastic clinic and were able to help 19 separate households file their state and federal income taxes. Our first submissions were a part of the flood of applications that hit the IRS portal upon its initial opening at 9:30 am.
The Work Station is a great community resource for people living in the Athens County area, offering free resume building, computer literacy classes, employment training and much more. Additionally, The Work Station has a special focus on veterans, a connection that was reflected in John’s fantastic outreach efforts to veterans within the local community. It was thanks to these efforts that we had such a great turnout, and we can’t wait to return for another tax clinic in the near future!
