Free income tax preparation offered

-A A +A

Taylor and Green county residents can receive free help with income tax preparation from the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program.

Electronic filing will be available free of charge. AARP membership is not required for assistance.

Counselors providing the help are retired business people with considerable experience in tax matters. This year's counselors are Brenda Cook, Carolyn Scott, Kathy Curry, Gail Munday and Bettie Jo Russell.

AARP tax aide volunteers will assist taxpayers on a first-come, first-serve basis for anyone at their walk-in location each Tuesday from 1 to 5 p.m.

Those using the service need to bring photo identification, Social Security cards for the taxpayer, spouse and dependents, copies of last year's federal and state tax returns and all income and expense forms.

Priority will be given to senior residents. Counselors can't help with tax preparations that include farm income and returns for clergy members.

Tax help will begin Feb. 4 and conclude April 15 at Greensburg Community Center, located at 110 N. 1st St. Other times might be available. To make an appointment, call Cook at (270) 932-7459.
