Tax Help

Since 1968, volunteer-based program has helped nearly 50 million low- to moderate-income taxpayers

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, an AARP Foundation program, helps low- to moderate-income taxpayers have more discretionary income for everyday essentials, such as food and housing, by assisting with tax services and ensuring they receive applicable tax credits and deductions.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is available free to taxpayers with low and moderate income, with special attention to those 60 and older. Through a cadre of trained volunteers, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has helped low- to moderate-income individuals for more than 40 years in every state and the District of Columbia.

AARP free tax assistance will be available at the SCFPL Thursdays, February 8, March 15 and April 5 from 9:00 a.m. to noon

Call the St Croix Falls Public Library for an appointment 715.483.1777

Walk-ins are welcome but may have to wait for an opening.

Although aimed at those aged 60 or over, this service is available to persons of all ages.
