Excellence great opportunity for folks now of how you a little bit before we started this interview you did mention that you're not much of a golfer however. As as well like telling people all the time. I'm a great golf for up until that windmill keep knocking the ball away at the putt putt course and and right. That's that's about my level of golf at that point it. But there's a lot of folks our community it is get the spring -- get that great weather out there so it's a great opportunity to folks for folks come on out. And again it's for a great cause the descent relate charity golf tournament that's going to be Saturday -- thirteenth of April 8 AM. There at the municipal golf course on. But now there's something else that you guys are doing as well and it's a very timely because. The fifteenth Monday the fifteenth that -- will be. Sweating bullets and doing their last second bits of tax preparation because you know especially via the right to track. In a mile mile and wasn't like get a refund. I get those taxes done immediately and set off right away if I ever after write a check guide I weight is close to midnight on the fifteenth as humanly -- sort they'll work. But you have some a tax preparation service correct. Yet that -- captors are -- annual golf -- in -- in your wedding on me. The golf course people and hopefully get that up with that and the fifteenth. But be offered -- epic year that we offer free tax preparation. Fourth -- in the community. You don't have to live in the green county but that's our primary. -- service is appropriate also available in the Gainesville area as well. We receive a grant from -- -- at -- TU. -- is appropriate in the community last year would be filed over thirteen hundred tax return. Claim mean one point six million dollars in tax return money. Be that most the number that's the most important is the number that the person have to get this done which is now so all the money that. Someone aren't -- year they get it -- back -- have to pay to get. The taxes done that it's great folks love it we have about one need volunteers this year. That are certified by the higher act fairly is that would want to volunteer we just need to put in to work. They go about it -- for a month certification process. And they must take him administered by the IRS and it's they passed. Then they can volunteer. That the great program because people can get a 100% money back pocket. And time like this like we've seen in the past couple years families individuals need as much money at stake and coming back to them. And that's that's great there's there's so much critics and others always questions about how much can -- trust any tax preparation service that though. Some of the bigger companies they've been running ads competing against one -- about a -- these people to hire anybody off the street. But you just make sure the people you have working with the folks on and give him -- taxes prepared. There are actually. Have a good about a ballot in the IRS is sort of a given its stamp of approval of guessed that these people understand. The tax laws what you can and cannot -- and all those things. -- and on top of that tie in the IRS oversees the training and and does all that topic that some of our. Volunteers have had that experience that work experience from many many years a few of them are tired. And say we can meet or TP gained thirty deductibility and now they do want to get back to communities and -- said experiences wonder well. That is a fantastic opportunity. Is there any. Income limit innovative five make seven point. Two million dollars a year. Can I go there that is hero the for lower income folks obviously they'll be that the goal. But is there any income limit on you know if you make over certain amount that you'd rather you know that the united -- and a -- help those folks. No we don't set -- income limit but you're right we can't see the folks that are a lower to middle income. Do you come into but we -- that any income limit for this program. But we tend to get the -- that we expect to get in hand they're very happy not to have to day full -- mr. Which is a great deal because again I mean if if you go to some of some places in our view -- have. You know an accountant you'd normally go to. You could pay you know -- couple hundred dollars or more in that eats a decent chunk out of a lot of people's tax return checks like you said in this economy gas prices what they are. If you can get every single penny back and also mean look -- me and I dual in my own tax stuff but even then nine I sort of you know and and has tended divided this -- I get that production right drive doesn't on this but to have folks that know what they're villain out there -- it is a fantastic thing.
