Tax Help! AARP* Tax Aide counselors will be on hand at the Recreation Center to offer free assistance to seniors with federal income tax returns every Wednesday and Friday from 10am-2pm starting February 5 through Tax Day. So bring your materials, sign in with the counselor, and take a few laps around the indoor walking track while you wait.
*(AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free, individualized tax preparation for low-to moderate-income taxpayers nationwide – especially those 60 and older.)
If you pay local property taxes and itemize deductions on your federal income tax return, you'll want to bring records of what you paid in property taxes to the Tax Aide counselors. You can access your property tax receipts at www.decaturgatax.com.
The DeKalb Library system has information about additional AARP tax sites in the area, and VITA tax assistance which is available to all taxpayers, not just senior citizens here.
