Free Tax Aid Offered For Needy Area Residents

Free tax preparation assistance is available at two Central Oahu sites now though early April, especially for low- to moderate-income workers.

The Family and Individual Self-Sufficiency Program has trained volunteers at the following sites by appointment:

* Hickam Federal Credit Union, Mililani branch, 95-1249 Meheula Parkway #119 – 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays through April 5. Call 423-1391.

* Waialua Federal Credit Union, 67-292 Goodale Ave. #A-2 – 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday through April 5. Call 753-8498.

The statewide service began in 2005 as a pilot program of Aloha United Way and is designed to alert taxpayers to valuable tax credits, save them money, encourage financial literacy and recruit and train others to work at the sites. For more details, visit hawaiitaxhelp.org.
