George Kuebler, VITA Site Supervisor, told the Region News Team the record number of returns could not have been achieved without the help of their 11 volunteers who are all trained and certified by the IRS.
The free tax preparations were provided from February 2nd through April 10th and in all over 530-thousand dollars in refunds and earned income credit were returned to taxpayers.
