Tax help for seniors, low to middle incomes

The R.H. Stafford Branch Library will present the AARP Tax-Aide Program, sponsored by the AARP Foundation and supported by the IRS and the Minnesota Revenue Department.

Volunteers will offer free tax preparation service to clients needing tax help. The service is focused on consulting for seniors and for low to middle income clients. Federal, state and Minnesota Property Tax returns are provided.

Regular tax consulting sessions are being offered, by appointment only, March 2 - April 13 in the lower level meeting rooms at Woodbury's Central Park, 8595 Central Park Place on Mondays and Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m.

To schedule an appointment, call Woodbury Parks and Recreation at (651) 714-3583.

All volunteers are trained in tax law and tax returns and will prepare returns on computers for e-filing to provide efficient, complete and accurate returns for quick refunds.

All tax law provisions for deductions, adjustments and tax credits will be considered for the client. Organizers say many clients find they are due refunds.

The AARP Tax-Aide program welcomes questions from clients such as, do they need to file, what income is included, what are their legal obligations, and other tax questions. Clients whose returns are not within the scope of the Tax-Aide Program will be advised to see a CPA or professional tax service.
