The AARP Tax-Aide program is available in three Gorge locations: Mondays at the Hood River County Library, Thursdays at the Hood River Valley Adult Center and by appointment at the Pioneer Center in White Salmon.
Volunteers provide free assistance for low- and moderate-income taxpayers, with special attention to those age 60 and older.
The kinds of returns that are within the scope of the program have narrowed this year. Volunteers cannot assist taxpayers with rental income, with businesses expenses greater than $5,000, with business losses or with home office deductions.
Taxpayers must bring with them proof of ID, Social Security and taxpayer ID numbers, a copy of last year’s income tax return, all W-2 forms and 1099 forms showing interest/dividends, unemployment, investment, pension, annuity and Social Security income.
Help will be available at the schedule below until April 15:
n Hood River County Library — Mondays, 2-7 p.m.
n Hood River Valley Adult Center — Thursdays, 2-7 p.m.
n White Salmon — Wednesdays by appointment only; call Jill Parrot at 509-493-3068.
