Tax assistance available at two locations
Tax season is here and the Enumclaw Public Library and the Enumclaw Senior Activity Center are providing free tax assistance.
The service is provided by trained volunteers and is available for low and middle income taxpayers, with special attention for those 60 and older. Working families and individuals can receive larger refunds with the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). A qualified family with two or more children can receive up to $4,824. An individual worker without children could be eligible for a tax credit up to $438.
Beginning Feb. 9 and running through April 8 assistance will be available at the Enumclaw Public Library, from 6 to 8 p.m. Mondays and from 2:45 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays.
To schedule an appointment, call 360-825-2938. In addition, appointments can be scheduled from 9 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays at the Enumclaw senior center. Call 360-825-4741 to schedule a time.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise across the U.S. and Washington and King County data show a similar trend towards more syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.
