Volunteers with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Foundation’s Tax-Aide program are gearing up to help area residents with their 2017 income tax returns. Volunteers will be available at the Weatherford Public Library (1014 Charles St.) on from Feb. 1 to April 17 on the following days and times:
- Mondays – 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Fridays – 1-4:30 p.m.
- Saturdays – 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Sundays – 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The volunteers are trained and tested in current tax law using IRS material to assist in filing basic income tax returns such as a form 1040 with schedules A, B, D, EIC, M, R, SE, and limited Schedules C and E.
To schedule an appointment, call the Weatherford Library at 817-598-4150.
