    14E –  Volunteer Firei  ghter – R.S. 47:293(9)(a)(xii) provides an exclu-
    sion of $500 per tax year for individuals who serve as volunteer
    i rei ghters. To qualify for this exclusion, the taxpayer must com-
    plete 24 hours of continuing education and be an active member
    of the Louisiana State Fireman’s Association or on the depart-
    mental personnel roster for the State Fire Marshal’s Volunteer
    Fireman’s Insurance Program. To substantiate the exclusion, a
    taxpayer should retain either a membership card with the tax-
    payer’s name and the applicable tax year, a lifetime membership
    card, or a copy of the departmental personnel roster for the State
    Fire Marshal’s Volunteer Fireman’s Insurance Program and a
    certii cate or other document provided to the taxpayer noting the
    date of the training, the topic covered, the duration of the train-
    ing, and name and contact information of the person providing
    the training to support the continuing education requirements.
    • I did what you suggested.  On turbo tax that is the credit for paid volunteers income not to be taxed.  My husband doesn't take pay, but there is suppose to be a schedule g which you can get a $500.00 credit for being a volunteer.

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
