Free Tax Preparation at Walk-In Sites in Rockland County

BY BARRY WARNER

DSCN5797Nanuet-The AARP Tax-Aide program provides free federal and state tax preparation help to people with low and moderate incomes from February 1 to April 15 at Walk-In sites throughout Rockland County. Special attention is given to individuals over age 60. It is important for taxpayers to bring last year’s returns and all of the documents needed to complete the forms. IRS-trained volunteer tax specialist Jan Chasson is helping two taxpayers obtain all the tax deductions and credits they are entitled to in order to e-file their returns.

Allan Goldberg, AARP site-coordinator said, “The Nanuet Library is also a Facilitated Assistance Site (FSA) for those taxpayers who wish to prepare their own tax returns with guidance from an IRS-certified volunteer. A computer will be available to e-file the federal and state returns plus the taxpayer will have access to interview-based software.”

No appointments are necessary at the Nanuet Library and returns are prepared on a first come, first serve basis on Wednesdays from 10am to 2pm. For further information call (845) 623-4281
