Tax assistance program seeking volunteers for 2017 season

The Westlake Bay Village chapter of the AARP Foundation Tax Aide program is seeking volunteers to help people with their income taxes and tax preparation beginning in January 2017.

The need for volunteers is great this year as the program grows to meet the increasing needs of this valued and valuable neighborhood initiative.

The Tax-Aide program provides personal income tax assistance and tax form preparation to low- and moderate-income tax payers, with special attention to individuals 60 and over. During the past 2016 tax season, from January through April, the local chapter of the AARP Tax Aide program helped over 5,000 people with their tax returns and related counsel in Districts 10 and 11, which include locations in Cleveland, Brooklyn and the Westshore.

Bay Village and Westlake locations include Dwyer Memorial Senior Center, Bay Village Library and the Westlake Community Services Center.
