The AARP Tax Assistance Program will be returning to the Preston Senior Center this year. We will be having some small changes to what we’ve done in the past and that is mostly due to COVID 19’s persistence in the region.
Appointments will be scheduled at one-hour intervals starting at 10:00 a.m. and continuing through 1:00 p.m. We will require that face masks be worn by everyone entering the senior center. We are also limiting the number of persons in the building at one time. We look to accommodate persons who have had their taxes done by AARP Tax Councilors at the Preston Senior Center as our priority. Some adjustments to our schedule are possible due to changes necessary to accommodate safety precautions.
The AARP Income Tax Assistance program is free of charge and will be conducted at the Preston Senior Center, 42 Long Society Road. The income tax preparation assistance is designed for low and middle-income tax payers of all ages, with special attention to those individuals who are 60 years of age or older. We also ask that you bring your Income Tax documents from 2021 which
you filed. If married, we ask that both husband and wife are present during the income tax counseling session. Taxpayers must bring all documents which they have received that apply to their 2022 income tax including:
