AARP program offers FREE tax assistance to Lawrence-area seniors
- on January 24, 2012
Free tax assistance is available to residents ages 60 and older and those with low to moderate income at the Lawrence Senior Center through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program.
Volunteers are offering assistance through April 17 at the center, 745 Vt. Instead of providing services on a walk-in basis only, they are taking appointments. To make an appointment, call 856-0365 between noon and 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
The program is providing tax assistance from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
Last year, the program provided tax assistance for 1,450 people in Lawrence.
The program also is available in:
