Free tax counseling and simple income tax preparation for senior citizens and taxpayers with low incomes is now available from AARP Tax-Aide counselors at the Wayne County Public Library on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Help will be available from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. through April 10.
In addition, tax returns will be prepared on Fridays at the Wayne County Senior Center at 100 S. John St., appointment only, from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., beginning Feb. 3 and running through April 6.
People interested in the program should call 731-1591 for information or an appointment.
The Internal Revenue Service requires that all taxpayers bring valid photo identification, a Social Security card or ITTN card, for themselves and all their dependents.
Tax returns will be filed electronically. The IRS will not allow AARP to prepare a return if the taxpayer refuses to have their return filed electronically.
