The AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide program provides free tax assistance and preparation through April 17.
Assistance through Tax Aide is not limited to older adults, said Joyce De Monnin, AARP Oregon communications director. Older adults, families and even college students who have low and moderate income levels are eligible for the free services. AARP membership is not required.
AARP volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure they are aware of the latest changes to the U.S. Tax Code. People are encouraged to check the website for current information and what to bring when going to a Tax-Aide site. The current schedule includes:
•Hermiston Public Library, 235 E. Gladys Ave. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
•Boardman Senior Center, 100 Tatone St. Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
