AARP to offer free tax-return assistance
The American Association of Retired Persons will offer free assistance with tax returns at the Jamestown Philomenian Library starting Feb. 2. Tax preparation help is offered from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays on a walk-in basis.
All tax preparers are trained, and are required to pass a certification test each year. Counselors are qualified to handle most common schedules and forms; complex returns should be taken to paid tax preparers. State returns for Rhode Island and Massachusetts can be prepared along with federal. Returns are electronically filed.
