The AARP Foundation is offering free income tax preparation Tuesdays through April 15 at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, 1120 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. S.
The service is for low- to middle-income taxpayers with special attention to people age 60 and older.
Tax returns will be prepared by IRS-certified, volunteer tax counselors who provide one-on-one assistance to the taxpayer. The Federal and North Carolina tax returns, after being completed and reviewed by the taxpayer, are immediately electronically filed. This eliminates the need to mail the returns and results in faster receipt of any refunds.
Taxpayers seeking assistance must make an appointment by calling the Senior Center at 704-216-7714.
Taxpayers can choose from either morning or afternoon appointments. Those seeking assistance should bring their Social Security card, picture ID and all tax related materials including W2s, 1099Rs, Social Security statements, other income statements, stock sales, charitable contributions, real estate taxes paid along with their 2012 Federal and North Carolina tax returns.
