MARQUETTE — There’s a nationwide effort currently underway to help people with low to moderate incomes file their taxes at no cost to them.
The AARP Foundation Tax–Aide helps millions of people file their taxes every year. From now until April 8th, volunteers at the Gwinn, Marquette and Negaunee Senior Centers are available to help people file their taxes.
All you have to do is call ahead and setup an appointment.
“It allows the folks that really need it to get their taxes prepared at no cost to them,” said Richard Brich, a local coordinator for AARP Foundation Tax–Aide. “We do both a federal and state e–file. There is no cost for doing any of that; it gets it over and done. Generally it takes us an hour or less to do a return. We get a real thrill out of helping folks.”
Brich added that this program is available in places across the Upper Peninsula. The AARP Foundation Tax–Aide is that nation’s largest volunteer run tax preparation and assistance service.
