The Pleasant Valley Senior Center staff works with volunteer AARP tax preparers to offer a FREE Income Tax Preparation Assistance Program. They come to help low -to moderate-income taxpayers, especially those 60 and older. The service is offered in the Senior Center beginning on February 6, 2017 and continues through April 10, 2017.
The AARP volunteers receive the necessary training to help file certain tax forms and schedules, including the Form 1040 and are able to file the tax forms via e-file.
The volunteers will stay within the scope of the Volunteer Protection Act and if they feel they do not have adequate knowledge or your return is too complex, you may need to seek another qualified counselor or paid tax assistance.
The service is offered Monday mornings from 9 AM until noon. Participants must call (805) 482-4881 or come by the Senior Center to make reservation for appointments.
