TAX COUNSELING: The IRS and AARP jointly sponsor a program staffed by volunteers to electronically prepare and file income tax returns at no cost to the taxpayers. Although intended for elderly and low-income families, no taxpayer will be turned away. Note however, taxpayer’s returns requiring the reporting of significant business income or any loss, or any rental income are beyond the scope of this program. Tax-Aide volunteers are prepared to handle all 2007 tax law changes. Taxpayers must bring a photo identification, documents verifying the Social Security numbers of all persons on the tax return and all 2007 tax documents. It is advisable to bring a checkbook to provide account numbers for electronic funds transfer and a copy of the 2006 return for comparison purposes. If in doubt about the paperwork, bring it all and let us sort it out.  Plan to arrive early. We try not to begin preparation of a new return during the last half-hour before closing time.
