Have you filed your taxes yet? You now have less than two months to get it done. If you need help, trained AARP Tax-Aide volunteers are ready to offer free assistance and electronic filing, primarily to local low-to-middle income taxpayers.
Maureen Collins, Local Coordinator, asserts that tax help is available on four different days of the week at three different locations in Rome and Calhoun.
AARP Tax-Aide assistance is offered at the Rome-Floyd County Library, 205 Riverside Parkway, each Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm until April 11th and on Mondays from 1 pm to 4 pm until April 13th. A second location in Rome is at the Charles C. Parker Center, 1325 Kingston Road, on Wednesday from 1 pm to 4 pm through the tax deadline on April 15th.
Assistance is also available in Calhoun every Friday from 1 pm to 4 pm until April 10th at the Calhoun-Gordon County Library, 100 North Park Avenue.
Make sure to take last year’s tax return, all available information for this year, a photo ID and your social security card when you seek AARP tax help, urges Collins.
Proof of health insurance is not necessary this year as it is not required by the US government, says Collins. She adds that although this program is mainly intended for low-to-middle income senior citizens, no taxpayer will be turned away based on age and/or income.
AARP Tax-Aide is offered by the AARP Foundation in conjunction with the IRS. For additional information, call Maureen Collins, Local Coordinator, at (203) 326-1323.
