Volunteers will assist with filing
Last year a coalition of nonprofit groups helped more than 7,000 Dutchess and Orange county residents complete their tax returns. Free tax help is again available starting Feb. 1 for low- and moderate-income residents. Volunteers from the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program will be on hand at a number of sites, including two in Beacon. AARP membership is not required.
Appointments can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Call 800-899-1479 daily between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. To volunteer as a Tax Aide, see aarp.org/money/taxes/aarp_taxaide.
