AARP offering tax help at KC-Longview

Staff Writer

Beginning Feb. 4, American Association of Retired Persons Tax Aides will provide income tax preparation help to low-income residents and retirees.

Tax help will be given 1-4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays at the KC-Longview campus Hendrix Building, Room 107.

KC has provided aid for tax preparations for about 20 years and has given volunteer tax aides space to do their work. Volunteers are well-trained professionals, including CPAs, who give up their time to do customers ‘tax returns at no cost.

According to Julie Fowler, executive dean of education at KC-Longview, the volunteers sometimes take their work home with them in order to maintain time-efficiency. It makes for a quicker service because the information can be sent in the same day.

While the service is set up for the low-income, Fowler also said, “I’ve seen them take in just about anybody… It’s really a wonderful service for them.”
