Jorawer Singh, Chandigarh, July 31, 2009 : In perilous economic times, the proper preparation of income tax returns is crucial. With many individuals living on the economic edge, getting a refund from the Internal Revenue Service can be a pleasant surprise and provide a welcome financial cushion. With pocketbooks being squeezed from every direction, it’s also important to calculate whether you’re paying too much money to the government. That’s why Dada Dadi org volunteers are volunteering their time and talents during income tax season — which ends TODAY — to help senior citizens, file their income tax returns.
Vijay Mehra, coordinator with NGO, was happy and content stating that he has now blessings of 635 elders with him, whom his team has helped compile the returns.
“It is very easy to compile the Income Tax Return using pre-programmed Excel sheet and even I prepared many of these myself.” says Jasmeet Kaur, President Youth Wing, Dada Dadi. Elders who opted for filing electronically can expect a tax refund as early as two weeks and that too deposited directly into their bank accounts.
