AARP Foundation Tax Aide Program 

Free tax preparation services are available by appointment at the Senior Center from early February through mid-April. Low to moderate income taxpayers, especially those age 60+, can receive this free service, provided by trained volunteers of the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program. 

Clients will schedule an intake appointment to drop off and inventory their tax-related materials and sign some forms. A counselor prepares the tax return while the client waits in the 1st floor lobby. The counselor will consult the client with any questions, then review the completed return with the client before e-filing. Expect the process to take about 60-90 minutes. 

Clients must bring copies of federal and state tax returns for the most recent year filed, photo ID and Social Security card for each taxpayer included on the return, W-2 forms, 1099 forms (including Social Security benefits statement), and bank routing/account info for direct deposit/debit.
