AARP volunteers offer free tax form assistance

Published:

 

AARP Tax-Aide will provide free tax assistance and preparation again this year, geared toward taxpayers 60 and older with low or moderate incomes.

AARP Tax-Aide volunteers, trained in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service, will help with personal income tax returns at seven locations around Clark County. Last year, the volunteers helped clients prepare more than 3,200 federal tax returns and 750 Oregon state tax returns. (Washington does not have a state income tax.)

Volunteers will staff the following locations from Feb. 1 through April 17: Vancouver Community Library, Three Creeks Community Library, Cascade Park Community Library, Battle Ground Community Library, Fisher’s Landing Assisted Living, Marshall Community Center and the Vancouver First Baptist Church at 27th and Main streets. Days and hours of operation vary by site.
