I’m able to flex my science skills and my cultural outreach skills — that’s why I really like it.” Before the pandemic, Culp was teaching environmental education in Alabama, but once schools switched to vir— tual learning, she sought a new position. “I was just trying to find a position in my field,” she said. “I studied natural re- sources in college, so it seemed like serving as an AmeriCorps for the Forest Service would be the perfect sort of leg up that I would need to get a job in this field.” While their work has been hindered by the pandemic, the trio continues to find ways to serve the Forest Service and the communities they were assigned. “A large part of my posi- tion is to go into the schools and work with school kids, and that’s been severely compromised,” Derringer admitted. “I haven’t really done much at all, unfortu- nately. I did get permission from the Forest Service, AFN HA and Marlinton Mid- dle School to, hopefully, go in to teach some lessons — with huge precautions — now that school is back to in-per— Saturday, February 13,2021, at Wallace and Wallace Fu- neral Home in Arbovale with Pastor William Vandevender officiating.

Born May 17, 1943, in Al- goma Hollow Coal Camp in McDowell County, she was a daughter of the late Emmer Theodore Lusk and Irene Zelma Hall Lusk Anderson. Judie was a very friendly and loving person, and she had a special touch for every person who came into her life. She would help anyone she could. She was a Mother-figure to everyone she met. Judie worked for home health at Pocahontas Memorial Hospital, and she she said. “The majority of my life right now takes place over Zoom. I’m definitely bummed that I can’t do a lot of actual community out- reach.” Regardless of how Culp is working with the communi- ties, she is seeing some progress being madewith, the partnership, which is a way for towns within the Mon Forest to rebrand and attract even more visitors with their connections to the forest. “It’s been great,” she said. “I think we’ve had a lot of recent movement with the partnership, and I’ve been able to see all of that occur. It’s been really great and re— ‘warding.” Culp hopes to be able to do more outreach in the communities and schools later this year — if social dis- tancing guidelines allow. “1 want to do environmen- tal education outreach,” she Compare apples to apples.

I would also like to get students outdoors, if possible, and go for hikes.” Even with the setbacks and tight restrictions, the three AmeriCorps volunteers have been able to make some progress in the communities and are enjoying their time in the Mountain State. “The contrast is really the mountains,” Scrafford said. “They’re very similar to where I’m from, except big— ger. So this feels more like coming home.” “West Virginia has been an amazing place to live,” Culp added. “The recreation op- portunities here are incredi- ble.

Senior Legal Aid iling taxes early, espe- Fcially if a refund is likely, is smart because identity theft through the fil- ing of fraudulent tax returns is still a huge threat for Americans. In 2019, the IRS paid out over $100 million in fraudulent refunds to scam- mers. Sad to say, a scammer can make up income and tax amounts and fraudulently file your tax returns, claiming to be you. The scammer can collect the fake refunds even in situations when one would not have been owed without the fraud. It just takes some basic identity information to steal your refunds, and you won’t know it until your own tax returns are rejected. When the time comes to work on taxes, everyone ap- preciates a way to lower them, especially through tax credits. Each dollar of a credit eliminates a dollar of tax. AlSO, some types uI‘ taA credits can increase a refund when one is owed. To claim such a federal or state credit, a taxpayer must file a tax return, but does not have to itemize deductions. Federal law provides an earned income tax credit‘for anyone with lower income who is raising one or more children. Around the country, many working grandparents are raising grandchildren and‘ may be eligible for this fed- eral tax credit. The amount is based on earnings from em- ployment (not government benefits) and the number of dependents. More details are available at https://www.irs. gov/credits-deductions/indi viduals/earned-income-tax- credit. For older or disabled homeowners, both the West Virginia’s Senior Citizens Tax Credit and the Home- stead Excess Property Tax Credit help lower income taxes. As part of our state’s prop: erty tax system, thenHome- stead Exemption program reduces the taxes owed on owner-occupied property for those who are age 65 and older or permanently dis- abled and who have signed up at their county assessor’s office for the exemption dur—: ing the qualifying period. There is no income require- ment for this exemption. Under the program, the first $20,000 of the home‘s as- sessed value is exempt, or non—taxable, for property tax purposes every year. Deb Miller, JD Volunteer As a bonus, those qualify— ing for the Homestead Ex- emption on property taxes may be eligible for the Sen- ior Citizens Tax Credit to lower state income taxes. The West Virginia State Tax Department’s Form SCTC-l, sent out in January each year, will list the amount of the tax credit that can be claimed. There is a low income re— quirement for Senior Citi- zens Tax Credit eligibility that is determined when cal- culating the amounts for the West Virginia tax return. The second state income tax credit for those qualifying for the Homestead Exemp- tion is the Homestead Excess Property Tax Credit. When a person’s or couple’s residen- tial property taxes exceed 4% of their income, they are eli- gible for a tax credit for the excess amount. The maxi- mum credit is $1,000. If a person qualifies for Lot}: credits, the amount of the Senior Citizens Tax Credit will reduce the amount of the Homestead Excess Property Tax Credit that can be claimed.
