AARP program offers FREE tax assistance to Lawrence-area seniors


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:

Baldwin City — 9:15 a.m.-11:45 a.m. Tuesdays and Fridays, starting Feb. 3, at the library, 800 Seventh St., 785-594-3411.

Ottawa — 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Thursdays, starting Feb. 2, at Ottawa City Hall, 101 S. Hickory St., 785-242-5560.

Oskaloosa — noon-4 p.m. Fridays, starting Feb. 3, at the library, 315 Jefferson, 785-863-2637.

beware of the senior center tax assistance, and know something about your return before you go in. I went one year, and they figured out my state tax badly off the mark of what it should have been, by a couple hundred dollars.
