Three locations in the Santa Rosa County Library System are once again AARP Tax-Aide Sites.
The AARP Tax-Aide program is the nation's largest free, volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service, providing service to millions of low- and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older.
The AARP Tax-Aide program offers free one-on-one counseling to help individuals prepare and file basic tax forms, including the 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ and other standard schedules. No appointment is necessary; however, service is on a first come, first serve basis. Library locations are equipped to file your return electronically, allowing you to receive your return much faster.
Free AARP Tax-Aide Preparation at Milton, Navarre, and Gulf Breeze Libraries begins in February:
• Gulf Breeze Library on Mondays, Tuesdays, & Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Milton Library on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Navarre Library on Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
