RDI Ends Tax Season

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

April 15th, the day that many in the field of accounting rejoice to see, as it's the day tax season ends. It was no different for Rural Dynamics Incorporated, who were busy as usual.

Director of Asset Development Karen Heisler said "the volunteer income tax assistance program helps people that earn less than $52,000 a year get their taxes prepared and filed free of charge. We were able to do that for the community."

It was the eighth year that RDI had been able to help the community with this program. It was once again, met with success as Heisler said "we prepared about 2,855 so far."

Heisler described the number of filings this year in comparison to the 2013 tax season as on par saying it was "steady for the Great Falls area."

While staying the course, Heisler says they have seen only one hundred less returns than last year, and part of that was out of their control.

Heisler said "we started a little later this year because of the IRS delays. We did a few less returns this year, but still we're always at around that 3,000 mark."

The delays didn't stop them from making sure earlier filings were submitted.

Overall satisfied with the 2014 tax season, RDI feels they can and always want to help more. Heisler said "we certainly can help more people, especially during the middle of the year. We have fifty volunteers that are certified, and take a test to prepare the taxes, and there were times we were a little bit slow, so we can always help more people."

RDI has already started looking at next year as they are looking for volunteers to help with next year's tax season.
