AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides in-person and drop-off service in Brattleboro

Beginning Feb. 1 and continuing through April 11, AARP Foundation is providing free tax assistance and preparation through its Tax-Aide program.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation's largest volunteer-based free tax preparation service. Volunteers are trained and IRS-certified every year to ensure they understand the latest changes to the U.S. Tax Code.

Tax-Aide will have two sites in Brattleboro available again this year. The Brattleboro Senior Center, 207 Main St., will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays, beginning Feb. 1. Call 802-257-7570 to schedule an appointment. Brattleboro VFW Post 1034, 40 Black Mountain Rd., will be open 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays, beginning Feb. 5. Call 802-451-6858 to schedule an appointment.

Tax-Aide has two options for providing taxpayer assistance with filing Federal and Vermont Income tax returns this year. You can use Tax-Aide's traditional in-person service, in which taxes are prepared and filed by IRS-certified tax counselors, or use the drop-off service, where you interact with IRS-certified Tax-Aide volunteers in two short, in-person meetings to exchange documents.

Assistance will also be available for filing Vermont Homestead Declaration, Property Tax Credit, and Renter Credit claims.
