FREE Tax Prep and Assistance

Posted on 02/3/2014 by | AARP South Dakota | Comments

Tax anxietyAs the saying goes, there are only two guarantees in life, death and taxes.    There’s not much we can do about the former, but as for getting your taxes done,  AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers can help.

More than 150 volunteers across the state, at a dozen locations listed below are now providing free tax preparation and assistance for taxpayers with low to moderate income.  In 2012, South Dakota volunteers served more than 9300 people and filed more than 6,000 electronic returns.   In South Dakota taxpayers who used AARP Foundation Tax-Aide received $5.9 million in income tax refunds and nearly $1 million in Earned Income Tax Credits (EITCs).
