And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To provide high quality free income tax assistance and tax form preparation to low- and middle- income taxpayers, with special attention to those age 60 and older.
We have prepared and filed over 1200 returns for each of the last three years. We are members of AARP Tax Aide although counselors do not have to be members of AARP. All tax law and software training, tax publications, and background checks are provided free of charge. Counselors are asked to work one or two days a week in four hour sessions from February 1 to April 15.
