Haven’t done your taxes yet? These Cobb students will do them for free


The tax deadline is here, but it’s going to be OK if you haven’t filed. Just breathe.

Better?

Either way, hopefully this will help: Osborne High School students will do your taxes for free today and tomorrow. (Tuesday, you know, the tax filing DEADLINE.)

7 tips for procrastinating taxpayers before the deadline

Osborne’s IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance — VITA — center caters to taxpayers with low to moderate incomes.

It is run by the students and staff at History Makers Church, on Windy Hill Road in Marietta, to teach the students about business.

Osborne has been running the tax center since 2011, according to the Cobb County School District. Similar programs are being run at high schools in Gwinnett and community centers in Fulton counties.

In that time, the district claims students have prepared more than 1,300 tax returns, yielding $800,000 in refunds.

You can make an appointment by calling 678-744-6470.

If so, couldn’t United have simply told this passenger quietly that if he did not give up his seat, he would be arrested when he got off the plane at his destination? &mdash...
