Gwinnett Tech & AARP Tax-Aide Partner to Offer Help from Feb. 2 – April 15
GWINNETT – NORTH FULTON
Looking for help preparing and filing your taxes? Gwinnett Technical College is once again partnering with AARP Tax-Aide to offer free income tax preparation and tax counseling for community residents, including Gwinnett Tech students and college team members.
Volunteers with AARP Tax-Aide will be on campus from Mon., Feb. 2 to Wed., April 15. Counseling and assistance will be available in the Busbee Center, Building 700, Room 2.104. Assistance will be offered Mon. – Thurs. from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and on Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Appointments are not necessary. 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, the nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run counseling and preparation service, helps more than 2.6 million people file their personal income tax forms each year. The program is offered at more than 6,500 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+.
Last year at Gwinnett Tech, the tax team of approximately 17 volunteers entered 921 clients into the system for 2013 tax returns. Overall, the team saved their clients roughly $142,000. Their goal is to service 1,200 clients this year.
AARP Tax-Aide is administered through the AARP Foundation in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service.
