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 Feb. 2 to April 15. Counseling and assistance will be available in the Busbee Center, Building 700, Room 2.108. Assistance will be offered each Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 3:30 p.m., as well as on Tuesdays from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. (Note: No assistance on March 17 & 18.)

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.
