Welcome to Encore Experiences in Harleysville
Good Friends, Good Food, Great Programs and Services!
Greater Harleysville and North Penn Senior Services (GHNPSS) operates both Encore Experiences in Harleysville and The PEAK Center in Lansdale. The mission of Greater Harleysville and North Penn Senior Services is to provide access to programs and resources that help older adults live independently and remain active. Both centers offer a place of comfort, fellowship and care to the seniors in our community.
GHNPSS (at both Encore Experiences and The PEAK Center) will be one of several local sites for free federal and state tax preparation. The trained AARP volunteers will be available at Encore from February 6th through April 12 on Mondays and Wednesdays by appointment only. Preference in scheduling appointments will be given to those seniors who have low to moderate household income, generally below $51,000. If you have self-employment income, it should be below $10,000.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment and bring the following items with you:
• A copy of last year’s (2015) completed/filed tax return
• Social Security statement and a photo ID
• All 2016 year-end financial statements from banks, investments, pensions, etc.
• Since both signatures are needed to file electronically, you and your spouse must come to the appointment.
For assistance in completing the PA Property Tax and Rent Rebate application, bring paid receipts for 2016 property taxes or rent receipts. For your convenience, you may stop by the social services office to obtain a Rent Certificate form for your landlord to complete and a Tax Preparation Worksheet prior to your appointment.
Appointments can be scheduled beginning on January 16 by calling 215-256-6900.
