Council on Aging hosts AARP Foundation Tax-Aide clinics
Need help sorting out the complex forms and ever-changing laws associated with filing tax returns? The AARP Foundation will sponsor four Tax-Aide clinics at Council on Aging’s (COA) office at 30 Kawana Springs Road in Santa Rosa for people over 50. The clinics provide free assistance in filing of federal, state, and local tax returns for low- to moderate-income tax payers.
The one-hour individual appointments are available on Feb. 27, March 13, March 27 and April 10. To schedule an appointment, call the Council on Aging at 525-0143, ext. 140.
“We are excited to host these tax clinics for the first time this year,” said Paul Miller, COA Director of Legal Services. “The Tax-Aide volunteers can help ensure taxpayers in need take advantage of all possible deductions and credits and file using the correct forms to help reduce their tax liability and avoid penalties.”
Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure their knowledge of revisions to the U.S. tax code. AARP Foundation is the charitable affiliate of AARP.
