 Program

Beginning Monday, Feb. 2, through Monday, April 13, free income tax preparation and e-mail filing will be provided Mondays and Saturdays at the Guilderland Public Library by the all-volunteer AARP Tax Aide Program. Volunteers are trained and certified in cooperation with the IRS, and prepare personal Federal and New York State income tax returns for taxpayers of all ages with low and moderate incomes. Appointments are necessary; a separate appointment is required for each taxpayer. Bring a copy of last year’s return, social security cards, photo ID, all 2014 W-2’s, 1099 statements, sold investments’ with purchase dates and cost basis, and supporting documents if itemizing deductions. 

Also, if these apply, bring supporting documents for any gambling winnings, medical insurance coverage, payments for any child care, payments for education, contributions to an IRA, and estimated tax payments you made during 2014. 

Bring your checkbook if you want a direct deposit of your refund. Tax Aide volunteers can’t do estate or partnership returns, returns with rental income, or returns requiring Schedule C (business returns with a net loss, inventory, employees, or expenses over $10,000.)  Both taxpayers must be present if filing a joint return, except in case of illness or infirmity.
