Tax-Aide at the Downtown Library
Thursdays & Fridays
Feb. 5 – April 10, 2015
What is Tax-Aide?
Volunteers from the Association of American Retired Persons (AARP) provide free assistance with federal and Oregon returns for low and middle income taxpayers. Service preference is given to the elderly and disabled. AARP volunteers cannot help with depreciation, rental income, or complex investment income.
How do I get an appointment at the Library?
Thursdays: Sign-ups begin at 12:30 p.m. for appointments between 1-7 p.m.
Fridays: Sign-ups begin at 8:30 a.m. for appointments between 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
- All appointments for the day are often handed out right away.
- People usually line up before sign-ups begin.
- Once you get an appointment, you may leave the Library and return at the appointed time.
- Each appointment is budgeted for one hour.
I need to schedule an appointment in advance. Can I still get Tax-Aide help?
Yes, but not at the Library. Find locations that make advanced reservations.
Is assistance available in Spanish?
AARP plans to provide an interpreter. To ensure correct filing, bring an interpreter if needed.
