GOT TAXES!

AARP Tax-Aide volunteer counselors will prepare your basic tax returns starting Friday, February 1 through Monday, April 14. This service is for people of all ages and incomes and will be held at the Albany Senior Center and at the Library. Your return will be prepared on computers and are electronically-filed at no charge. To help avoid long waits, appointments are required. The volunteers will be preparing taxes at the Albany Senior Center on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and at the Albany Public Library main branch on Tuesdays, from 12 – 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 1 – 3 p.m. Call the Senior Center at 541/917-7760 to make an appointment for any of these locations. Please remember to bring with you a summary of your various deductions, such as:

  • Medical (including dental and vision)
  • Medical miles (to and from service provider)
  • Charitable miles (to and from volunteer location)
  • Charitable cash contributions
  • Non-cash donations up to a maximum of $500

Also, bring last year’s tax return, your 2013 tax documents (1099, W-2, etc.), social security card, photo ID, or other government form with your social security number on it.

Please note: If you need help with previous year’s taxes the volunteer counselors will assist you with this during the month of March only.
