AARP Tax-Aide is a free service providing assistance in tax preparation for individuals with low to moderate income with special attention to senior citizens. This service is provided by trained local volunteers who are interested in making a difference in their communities.
Additional volunteers are needed in DeKalb, Sycamore and Genoa to assist individuals with their tax return preparation.
No experience is necessary to volunteer – just a desire to help others. AARP Tax-Aide will provide training for all volunteers at the Ideal Training Center at 1122 Park Ave. in Sycamore on Jan. 28-Feb. 1, beginning at 9:30 a.m. each day.
To volunteer and participate in this free training program, call Dave Leifheit, DeKalb County coordinator, at 815-895-2430 or 815-757-1800.
Tax service begins Feb. 1 and extends through April 15 at Elder Care Services in DeKalb, Sycamore United Methodist Church, Resource Bank Genoa office, Ideal Training Center in Sycamore and the DeKalb Public Library.
Each site is open one day a week for a period of time.
