It’s Tax Time: AARP South Dakota Can Help

For many of us, tax time is filled with stress and number crunching. But, filing your 2009 federal tax return doesn’t have to be a pull-your-hair-out experience. AARP volunteers are here to help. No fees, no hassle and no box to talk to.

AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation service. It is available to taxpayers with low and moderate-incomes and gives special attention to individuals 60 and older. In 2009, AARP volunteers in South Dakota prepared nearly 10,000 returns.

Tax-Aide volunteers are IRS trained and certified to assist with filing the 1040 Form and the more standard of the schedules, including Schedules A and B. Electronic filing (e-filing) is offered at most sites, with no charge to the taxpayer. E-filing ensures more accurate tax returns and faster processing of tax refunds.

This year, assistance is offered at numerous locations.

In addition to free in-person tax preparation, Tax-Aide offer free tax assistance year round via the Web, allowing allows taxpayers to pose questions to online volunteers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from the comfort of home. Learn more online.
