Free tax assistance begins today

AARP Foundation will provide free tax assistance and preparation for Hawaii taxpayers with low to moderate incomes through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program beginning Monday.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, in its 48th year, is the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, giving special attention to the older population. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service.

In Hawaii last year, Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 16,000 people file their federal and state tax returns. The program is offered at 40 sites in Hawaii, including senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations. The program helped Hawaii residents receive more than $5.5 million in refunds in 2014, and more than $1.2 million in Earned Income Tax Credits.
