The session of Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) will be at the West Florida Gas store on Oak Ave from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. until noon Saturday. On March 22 and 23, the free service will be available at the [City of Panama City Beach Community Center from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. A team from the Bay County Chapter 1315 of AARP held another session of VITA in Defuniak Springs in the Chatauqua Center Feb. 19, with Mrs. Bob­ bie Parmenter, director of the Walton Conty Council on Aging, acting as hostess. Tax-Aide is a service performed by trained persons over 55 to help and assist other senior citizens in preparing their income tax returns.

When the AARP team arrived at the Chatauqua center, the spokesman said, there were 14 senior citizens already waiting. During the day's session, he continued, a total of 24 persons were aided, some with simple questions and others with more involved problems. All problems were solved, however, he said, and the forms were completed so that each individual could finish and submit his return immediately. Mrs. Margaret Gaston, a teacher at Walton Senior High School in DeFunialt Springs, said she learned of the service of AARP and called for permission to bring her class of 18 students to the center to study first-hand the income tax methods. The group was welcomed by Max Robbins, second vice president of AARP. Robbins said the students "evidenced their receptivity and intelligence by their questions. They proved there is no generation gap between them and members of the senior citizens," he said. A group of VITA Tax-Aides will be in Blountstown for a re­ turn visit Mar. 9 at the City Hall, the AARP spokesman said. Officials of the AARP and the Regional Director's Office of the Internal Revenue Service are expected to visit unannounced to see the program in action, he said. "This program is not in opposition to professional firms or individuals who prepare Income tax returns for a fee," AARP officials said, "but it is a service provided free to answer questions which may confuse an older taxpayer while he is com^; pleting his o'wi return. Al Tovey, AARP president, pointed out that volunteers received their training for this service from a seminar conducted by Roger MacLean of the IRS. The next meeting of the Bay County AARP will be held at 2 p.m Mar. 13, Tovey said, at the Gulf Coast Community College Social Science Hall, Room SS103. The gest spealter was announced as Dabney Ramseur Jr. of the Commercial Bank. "His address will concern investments and the proper preparation of wills," Tovey said. He added that the public is invited.
