RSVP has provided this program for more than 20 years in partnership with the IRS. Volunteer tax assistors are specially trained to help people complete their taxes. The volunteer tax assistors are individuals who are college-aged students as well as older adults. The assistance includes helping participants complete federal tax forms, 1040EZ, 1040A and 1040 and the state income tax forms. All tax returns are submitted electronically once completed.
Assistance will be provided at various locations throughout the community and throughout the week, including at the Melrose Park Public Library on Mondays, the Elmwood Park Senior Center and the Eisenhower Library in Harwood Heights on Tuesdays, Proviso Township Office in Hillside on Wednesdays, the Leyden Township Carl Fiorito Center in Franklin Park on Thursdays, the Senior Assistance Center in Norridge on Fridays and in the Robert M. Collins Center on Triton College’s main campus in River Grove on Saturdays.
Those seeking assistance should call the RSVP Office at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3895, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays to make an appointment. The service will be offered Feb. 8 through April 14.

The success of our curbside recycling program is due to the residents who roll both carts to the curb. Those of you who and take the time to separate recycling saves everyone. By following handouts there is less trash in the recycling carts, which keeps its resale value high.
