tax time istock 8-14-13

Summer is winding down and its time to start thinking about planning for winter. Last year AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, a free, Volunteer-run tax assistance program prepared over 1700 tax returns in Montana for taxpayers with low- and moderate-income, with special attention to those age 60 and older. We are hoping to expand the program this year and are looking for volunteers who are willing to help us anytime from February 1 to April 15th. There are many kinds of opportunities available— from tax preparers to greeters, as well as communications, technology and administrative coordinators. Training will be provided, so you don’t have to be a tax expert to help. Apply at www.aarp.org/taxaide. Your help will be appreciated more than you can imagine.
