Free tax help available locally

AARP Foundation is again providing free tax assistance and preparation at several nearby locations for taxpayers with low to moderate income through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program.

The program, in its 46th year, is the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, giving special attention to older citizens. Residents do not need not be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service.

Last year in Oregon, nearly 1,200 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 84,000 Oregonians file more than 55,000 federal and state tax returns.

The program is offered at approximately 140 sites in Oregon including senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations.

The following is a list of nearby locations where you can find tax help:

n Hillsboro Police West Precinct, 250 S.E. 10th Ave.

Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Walk-in site located in the west side Hillsboro police station.

n North Plains Senior Center, 31450 N.W. Commercial St., North Plains; 503-647-5666.

Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Appointments preferred. Walk-ins only if space available.

n KeyBank will partner with the city of Beaverton, AARP Tax-Aide, and CASH Oregon to present Super Refund Saturday, a free tax preparation day for local residents filing a federal income tax return. Tax filers do not have to be KeyBank customers to participate. Super Refund Saturday is a one-day event in which banking professionals provide free income tax preparation assistance to low- and moderate-income wage earners, helping them to identify their eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).
