FORD AIDS TAX ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

 DEARBORN, Mich., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The annual mad dash to meet Uncle Sam's April 15 deadline will be a little less rushed this year thanks to a donation by Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) to the Detroit-area Accounting Aid Society.
 Ford donated 27 computers and six printers to the local organization's free Tax Assistance Program, which uses volunteers to help low-income individuals and families with their tax-filing needs. Prior to the donation, the Tax Assistance Program operated with only 10 computers throughout its 46 tax preparation sites in Greater Detroit.
 "The addition of these computers and printers will dramatically affect the preparation time of tax returns," said Mark Savitskie, a Ford auditing supervisor and board member of the Accounting Aid Society. "In some cases, an individual return may require as little as one-fourth the time to complete."
 The Tax Assistance Program has been aiding low-income families locally with tax return preparation for 18 years. "Last year, we were able to help more than 14,000 qualifying individuals and families, who received $7 million in tax refunds," said Reinard Davis, manager of the Tax Assistance Program.
 "However, limited resources kept us from helping more than 5,000 other local residents who were in need of our service," Mr. Davis said. "We expect that Ford's donation will allow many more filers to be assisted."
 Ford has supported the Accounting Aid Society and its Tax Assistance Program for a number of years, with financial backing, volunteers and other resources.
