Thanks to the Soldotna Public Library for hosting our AARP Foundation Tax-Aide team during the income tax filing season that just ended. The Library provided a great space for Tax-Aide volunteers to meet with taxpayers. Library staff also supported the team by booking appointments, answering taxpayer questions and providing internet connections.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free, individualized tax preparation for low-to moderate-income taxpayers – especially those 50 and older. This year, Soldotna reestablished its Tax-Aide site following a year without a team. The Soldotna Library gave us the opportunity to meet with many taxpayers, saving them all the cost of commercial tax return preparation.
Additional AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be needed to continue the program in Soldotna next tax season. We’re looking for compassionate and friendly individuals to join our team. No tax preparation experience is needed. AARP provides training materials, computers and support to help you learn new skills. You’ll get a great feeling from helping your fellow Alaskans.
You can make a big difference in someone else’s life. We’ll show you how. Visit www.aarpfoundation.org/taxaide.
