Tax-Aide returns to give free help with tax returns

PLATTSBURGH — Tax-Aide, sponsored by AARP Foundation and the IRS, will begin helping area low- and middle-income taxpayers electronically file their 2012 tax returns beginning Tuesday, Jan. 22 at the Senior Center, 5139 North Catherine St.

The nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run tax assistance service, Tax-Aide will be open in January and February from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays; and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. 

The site will be closed on President’s Day, Monday, Feb. 18.

Those wishing to have their tax return prepared must arrive at least a half hour before closing time. This is a walk-in service only. New arrivals will be helped only if the volunteers can complete the return within the hours of operation.

In March, there will be no Monday and Tuesday hours. In April, there are no Monday, Tuesday and Saturday hours.

The volunteers at the Plattsburgh site helped more than 3,000 local taxpayers file taxes last year. All the volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS.

To use the service, you must bring along the Social Security cards of yourself and all dependents, all your current tax documents and last year’s tax returns.

Client facilitators meet with clients to be sure they have the necessary paperwork to complete the return, then a tax counselor takes over.

All returns are quality reviewed before they are electronically filed, the release said.
