Placeholder Image
MONROE - Volunteer tax aide counselors trained and certified by the Internal Revenue Service will provide one-on-one assistance to help older low- to moderate-income individuals complete their tax returns. This service is free of charge and will begin in February. There is no age restriction.

People using this service should present copies of the previous year's tax returns, W-2s, 1099 forms, a photo ID, Social Security card, and any other relevant materials for the current year. If filing a Homestead Credit Claim, 2015 property tax bills and/or rent certificates also are needed. Also needed is verification of health insurance coverage for the taxpayer, spouse and any dependents.

In Green County, trained AARP volunteers will be available to help with tax form completion at three sites. They will be at Brodhead Public Library, 1207 25st St., Brodhead, every Monday beginning Feb. 1, and Albany Village Hall, 206 N. Water St., Albany, Feb. 5 and 19 and March 11 and 25. For an appointment at either of these locations, call ADRC at 328-9499. They will be at Behring Senior Center, 1113 10th St., Monroe, every Wednesday beginning Feb. 3. For an appointment, call the Behring Center at 325-3173.
