AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be in the Arlington libraries from February 1, 2014, until April 14, 2014, to help low- and middle-income taxpayers (with special attention to those age 60 and older) fill out their federal income tax returns. AARP Tax-Aide also provides online assistance that includes a list of frequently asked questions and a form to email questions to Tax-Aide volunteers. For more information, please contact AARP directly by calling toll-free, 1-888-AARPNOW (1-888-227-7669) or visit their website. Tax returns will be electronically filed which promotes accuracy, safeguards information, and speeds up returns.
