AARP tax program winding down

PLATTSBURGH — For the last few days of March and in early April, the AARP tax program at the Clinton County Senior Center in Plattsburgh will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday.

The service will be available just one more Saturday — from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 29. 

The intake closes at least a half an hour before the site closes to assure that tax counselors can leave on time.

The last day that taxes will be electronically sent will be Friday, April 11.

“The site has been quite busy this season, so be sure that you have all your tax documents with you should you elect to have your taxes filed here,” a press release said.
