AARP offers free tax preparation
Trained volunteers from AARP will perform free, individualized tax preparation for low-to moderate-income tax payers at four sites in the Gresham area.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation help to anyone, but especially low-income folks 50 and older. "We understand that retirement or other life changes may mean your taxes are a little more complicated now. With the help of our team of IRS-certified volunteers we make it easy for you," AARP said in promotional materials.
The Gresham tax clinics will be open though April 18. Hours and days vary.
AARP membership is not required, but some locations require appointments.
Participants need to bring necessary documents, including last year's tax return, Social Security card or other official documentation for the filer and every person to be listed on the return. Please bring W-2, SSA-1099 or other statements of income such as bank interest or dividend statements.
If the filer thinks they will itemize deductions, bring documents such as the 1098 form showing home mortgage interest, a list of medical expenses, contributions to charity and property tax bills or other necessary documentation.
Photo identification is required for all taxpayers.
