Free tax preparation will be held at sites in Wilmington, Blanchester and Sabina from Feb. 8 through April 9.
The tax service is available by appointment and will be provided by certified AARP volunteers. AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest free volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation service for limited and moderate income individuals. The program is available to taxpayers of any age. More than 95 percent of the tax returns are E-filed.
The volunteer preparers are trained and certified by AARP and the Internal Revenue Service. Some returns are beyond the scope of the service including businesses with inventory, a loss, or expenses over $10,000 and non-farm rental property.
