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.
