AARP offers tax filing assistance

AARP will again offer a tax assistance program in Forest Lake. Free tax assistance and preparation services will be available by appointment on upcoming Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The service is especially designed for low- to moderate-income taxpayers age 60 and over.

An IRS-certified volunteer will guide participants with simple returns through the process of filing their taxes for free. From Feb. 5 through early April, sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Tuesday and Wednesday at city hall, 220 N. Lake St. On four Saturdays (Feb. 16, March 2, March 16, March 30), sessions will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hardwood Creek Library, 19955 Forest Road N. in Forest Lake.
