Free tax preparation continues at Shipley Center

IRS-certified AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers continue to prepare and electronically file tax returns at the Shipley Center in Sequim.

This quality tax preparation service is free of charge. The TAX-AIDE program is sponsored by the IRS and the AARP Foundation, and is available for low-and- moderate-income taxpayers of all ages.

The AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are authorized to prepare most basic tax returns, making sure that the taxpayer receives all eligible deductions and credits. Whether a first-time taxpayer, a student, a working family, or a retiree, the TAX-AIDE volunteers are there to help.

The volunteers do not prepare returns for taxpayers who have income from rental properties or for taxpayers with complicated business returns.

This year, the service will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis at the Shipley Center, 921 E. Hammond St. No appointment is required.

Volunteers will be available on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m.—3 p.m. throughout the tax season.

What to bring

Taxpayers should bring the following documents to their TAX-AIDE visit:

• Photo ID of the taxpayer (required)

• Social Security CARDS for taxpayer, spouse and all dependents (required!)

• Copy of 2016 tax return

• W-2s from each employer

• All 1099 forms—these include income from interest, dividends, stock sales, retirement, self-employment, social security, unemployment compensation and cancellation of debt.

• Check or bank document with routing and account numbers, if direct deposit of the refund is desired

• Any other documents that may be necessary to complete your 2017 tax return.
