IRS-certified AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers will be available again this year to prepare and electronically file tax returns at several sites in the Sequim area.
The service is free of charge.
Although the TAX-AIDE program is sponsored by the IRS and the AARP Foundation, participants do not have to be AARP members and the service is available to taxpayers of all ages. An appointment is required at most sites.
The AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are authorized to prepare most basic tax returns for low- and moderate-income taxpayers, making sure that the taxpayer receives all the eligible deductions and credits. They do not prepare returns for taxpayers who have income from rental properties or for taxpayers with complicated business returns.
