AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is providing free in-person and virtual tax assistance and preparation now through April 15 throughout South Dakota.

Tax-Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS, and AARP membership is not required.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Next Tuesday morning, we will be sending out an action alert allowing you to thank South Dakota legislators for passing bills designed to improve long-term care services and supports in the state. With our other action alerts, we have asked legislators for a specific vote on a bill, so this will be a great opportunity to express appreciation for their service and for taking actions to help improve options for South Dakotans as they age.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before we get to our update on what happened in Pierre, this week, we want you to be watching for another email coming from us soon on the House State Affairs Committee Hearing on SJR501. As a reminder, this is the resolution that would place a measure on the November ballot related to work reporting requirements for some individuals eligible under Medicaid expansion. When you see that action alert email, please take a moment to send a message to committee members urging them to respect the will of the voters who passed Medicaid expansion and vote NO on SJR 501.
As the President’s Day holiday approaches, the action in the legislature will be fast and furious for the next few weeks!

As we enter February and near the halfway point of session, the pace in Pierre is moving even faster. The deadline for introducing bills was Wednesday (January 31). All totaled, the legislature will consider over 525 bills, resolutions and commemorations.
