Volunteers offer free income tax preparation

The program is run by the IRA and AARP, but membership isn't required, and it's open to all ages

Free income tax preparation and electronic filing for low- or moderate-income taxpayers of any age is sponsored by AARP and the Internal Revenue Service through April 15. AARP membership is not required to take advantage of this service. All volunteers are members of the local communities.

Participants must bring a picture ID, Social Security Card, a 2008 tax return, and all other income and expense records that will be used in filing the tax return. Both spouses should be present for joint returns. Please remember to bring information on the stimulus payment you received. You must be at the site at least 45 minutes before closing.
