Home improvements and repairs are some of the most unpleasant and expensive responsibilities of home ownership. However, a reputable contractor can improve your experience. Unfortunately, scam artists target the elderly and people who receive insurance proceeds after a disaster. Older people are more likely to have money saved and have home equity, which makes them attractive targets. Learn to recognize a home improvement scam before it's too late.
If you are a low income taxpayer, you are eligible to have your income tax return prepared for free at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site. There, IRS-certified volunteers will complete and e-file your federal and state income tax return. Some sites are walk-in and some require appointments. Also, some sites, designated as an AARP or TCE site, specialize in senior citizens. See the attached list of NWA sites for the upcoming filing season. Sites open in late January or early February.
