AARP Providing Free Tax Preparation Help

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Tax time is here, and AARP is providing a free tax service to anyone who might need help with their filing.

Many seniors and low income individuals don't have adequate access to computer filing services like TurboTax.

Because of that, AARP is helping people file their returns electronically.

They've got more than 50 certified volunteers that can help lead you through you're filing quickly and correctly.

It's free, and it could save you hundreds in accounting costs.

"They don't have to buy the software, we have the computers, we will e-mail it, they can get their returns in or their refunds in a minimum of ten day," said Dennis Van Houdt with AARP. 

The service starts Thursday.

Ten locations across the Columbia Basin will offer the it, and four more in the Walla Walla area.
