FREE TAX ASSISTANCE

The Fond du Lac Senior Center is offering free tax assistance for 2013 tax filing and homestead credit. Click on the TAX AIDE INFORMATION link below for more details. 

The Tax-Aide program, administered through the AARP Foundation in cooperation with IRS, is designed to assist the elderly in preparing their personal income tax returns, but the trained volunteers can also help all low-to-moderate income age groups. Although there are certain types of tax situations such as rental property, farm or business income that are not covered by the Tax-Aide program, the volunteers will be able to assist most area residents. This is an AARP and IRS co-sponsored community service.

Last year volunteers assisted over 1000 citizens by preparing and E-filing returns and providing other assistance.
