Free AARP Tax Preparation
for Leisure World Residents Begins Feb. 3, 2016
The Leisure World tax preparation site is in Clubhouse I and taxes are done every Wednesday starting on Feb. 3, 2016. You need to sign up for an appointment in the E&R office in Clubhouse I. Stop by the office or call 301-598-1300 to schedule your appointment.
Volunteers of the AARP Tax-Aide Program must pass the IRS certification tests. All who prepare or check returns must be certified every year. They also have a Maryland test they must pass.
They can do most returns, but there are a few exceptions. If you are a taxpayer with rental real estate income, are self-employed or have either a home office or expenses greater than $25,000, they will not be able to do your return.
You must bring with you all of the tax documents and a copy of last year’s tax return. If you have stocks or bonds, you may not receive those documents until the end of February, so don’t make your appointment too soon.
Stop by Clubhouse I in Leisure World Maryland or call 301-598-1300 to schedule your appointment.
