Volunteer's comment: "I've been at O'Malley ever since they opened, since day one.

"I've been doing some people's tax forms for all nine years. Nine out of 10 times we do the whole tax form for people.

"Every year we have to take classes and pass, so we can continue to do this."

About the program: VITA's trained volunteers provide free tax assistance to elderly, low-income or handicapped residents. In Anne Arundel County, residents can get help with tax preparation at five senior centers: Arnold, South County, Pascal, O'Malley and Annapolis, and at the Severna Park Library.
