AARP offers tax preparation help in Trumbull County
WARREN — Free tax preparation is available to low- to moderate-income senior citizens at locations all over Trumbull County through April 15.
Tax returns are prepared by volunteers trained in the Internal Revenue Service computer program. The service is offered through the American Association of Retired Persons Foundation, a charitable organization, in cooperation with the IRS.
All taxpayers must bring a copy of their 2008 tax return and the social security cards for themselves, their spouse (if applicable) and dependants.
If the taxpayer did not have their previous return prepared at an AARP tax site, they must bring a photo ID also.
Anyone needing a copy of their 2008 tax return should call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.
