Decatur-based AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers gathered at the Tucker Library last week to receive training in tax law in preparation for this year’s tax season.

Free tax assistance and preparation for low- and moderate-income taxpayers of all ages, is available from AARP Foundation Tax-Aide from February 3 through April 15.

You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers, trained in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service, will offer help with personal income tax returns at various locations around Georgia.

“Tax law can often be confusing. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers can make the process of  filling out tax returns easier,” Helen Lowenthal, District Coordinator for much of DeKalb County, said in a statement.

Last year, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers in the United States helped more than 2 million people file their federal, state and local tax returns. The program is offered at many sites in Georgia including senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations. 

Beginning Feb. 1, call the toll-free number, 1-888-AARPNOW (1-888-227-7669) or visit the website at www.aarp.org/taxaide during this tax season, to locate an AARP Foundation Tax-Aide site.
