Still Time For Seniors To Get Free Tax Help

Mar 6, 2014

The American Association of Retired Persons is again helping seniors with tax preparations. Nancy Brissee from Rhinelander coordinates A.A.R.P. Tax Aide Program at  the Oneida Senior Center in Rhinelander...  

"....we're a  TCE program, tax counseling for the elderly. It's main target is people over age 60 with low to moderate incomes. We prepare tax returns free of charge for those clients...."

 Brissee says clients should bring a few items with them when they come in for an appointment...

  ".....they should bring in their Social Security Card, their Social Security statements, any W-2 reflecting wages they earned, 1099's which are tax forms for annuities, and pensions...."

 She says also bring in prior tax returns they have prepared and a rent certificate or property tax bill. She says they're still taking appointments through the first of April. Appointments for their service are made through the Oneida Senior Center. Brissee says there are AARP tax help people in Eagle River and Tomahawk. The Lakeland Senior Center also has tax help for the seniors through April 10.
