AARP, in cooperation with the IRS, is now setting appointments for citizens who require some assistance with their tax returns this year.
The FREE service is open to all and can be of particular assistance to young taxpayers with children who might qualify for tax credits such as the Earned Income Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Dependent Care Credit but are intimidated by the paperwork.
Note this service is intended for citizens with reasonably uncomplicated personal returns, especially low to moderate income. Involved investment scenarios are out of the scope of this service.
Appointments can be made for every Monday beginning Feb. 11 through April 8 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. (Closed Feb. 18 for Presidents' Day).
To make an appointment, call 360-825-2045. All returns will be electronically filed with the IRS, with limited exceptions.
