NEWBURYPORT – Although the Newburyport Council on Aging is closed to the public, the free income tax preparation services that AARP Tax Aide volunteers typically offer are still available.
The volunteers provide free tax preparation assistance for those with relatively simple tax returns who cannot afford to pay for these services. It is the largest voluntary free tax preparation service in the country. Volunteers are trained and Internal Revenue Service certified each year to ensure they understand current tax law.
Volunteers will provide services through a “low contact” process with two short, socially distant meetings to exchange tax documents and the necessary in-depth phone calls.
To make appointments, call the council at 978-462-0430.
