AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, the nation's largest free, volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service, is seeking volunteers to help state taxpayers who are seeking assistance preparing and filing their 2014 tax returns. The Rogers community is in need of volunteers in order to continue free tax assistance services provided in February and March to the seniors. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers receive free tax training and are reimbursed on a limited basis for qualified program-related expenses. They help taxpayers at sites around the state, learning new skills while giving back to countless communities. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS.
For more information on how you can join this team of trained volunteers, visit their website at www.aarp.org/tavolunteer8 or call Bob Post at 763-682-2376.
