Free Tax Preparation, Counseling Offered at Gwinnett Tech
Gwinnett Tech & AARP Tax-Aide Partner to Offer Help Feb. 1 – April 13
Tax season is here … and help is on the way! Gwinnett Technical College is partnering with AARP Tax-Aide to offer free income tax preparation and tax counseling for community residents and Gwinnett Tech students, faculty and staff.
Volunteers with AARP Tax-Aide will be on the college’s campus from February 1 to April 13. Counseling and assistance will be available in the college’s Busbee Center, Building 700, Room 2.310. Counseling will be conducted each Wednesday and Thursday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., as well as on Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
AARP Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run counseling and preparation service, last year assisted more than two million people file their personal income tax forms. The program is offered at more than 7,000 sites around the country including senior centers, colleges, libraries and other convenient locations. Each year at this time, AARP Tax-Aide volunteers prepare federal, state and local tax returns for middle and low income taxpayers, with special attention to those aged 60+.
Clients are asked to bring last year’s income tax return, proper identification and all necessary documents for this tax year. Electronic filing will be available through this free service at Gwinnett Tech.
AARP Tax-Aide is administered through the AARP Foundation in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service.
