The AARP TaxAide program has just completed its 50th year doing taxes. This program, a partnership between AARP and the IRS, is free and available to anyone and there are no age or income requirements for this service. All tax preparers are volunteers and are trained and certified by the AARP TaxAide program every year.

Locally, the service covers St. Francois, Madison, Ste. Genevieve, Perry and Washington counties and completed 1,146 federal or state returns in the 5-county area.

This year the free tax service from Tax Aide will be in Fredericktown at the library on Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning Feb. 1 and the next five Fridays. There is a signup sheet in the library lobby but no appointment is necessary. Other available sites include the Farmington Library on Tuesday and Wednesday starting Feb. 5 from 9-1 and the Bonne Terre Senior Center on Thursdays starting Feb. 7 from 9-1.

If you would like to volunteer with Tax Aide call Veve at 573-330-0337 for more information.

After the end of every tax season, the volunteers get together at a luncheon.
