File Your Taxes for Free

With snow on the ground, the April 15th deadline for filing taxes may seem far away. As the old saying goes, “time flies” so why not get your taxes done without the last-minute stress?

Actually, AARP can offer a wonderful solution to you that may make the entire process much easier! AARP offers free tax preparation through AARP Tax-Aide in many different locations in Maine. Administered through AARP Foundation and jointly sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), this program provides free, quality assistance in filing taxes. Nationwide, there are over 35,000 IRS-trained AARP Tax-Aide volunteers with hundreds of them serving in that role right here in Maine. These volunteers can assist you in filing both short forms and more complicated long forms along with the necessary attachments.

AARP Tax Aide is available to taxpayers of varying incomes and ages. According to recent AARP survey conducted through Market Decisions, in the past 12 months, 34% of all Mainers 18+ have experienced difficulty paying for basic, essential items such as food, rent/mortgage and medications. 36% reported difficult paying for utilities such as heating or phone service. Given that the state budget is still being debated with many programs at stake, filing a tax return for free and possibly receiving a tax refund could help lighten these worries.

This tax season, consider saving some money by going to see an AARP Tax-Aide volunteer. You will find experience, dedicated volunteers ready to help. You do not need to be an AARP member to use the program.

To find an AARP Tax Aide site near you, call 1-888-227-7669 or visit www.aarp.org/taxaide.
