Local AARP TaxAide volunteers, certified by the IRS, will be providing free income tax preparation assistance to low- and middle-income taxpayers with special attention to those age 60 and older. These volunteers will answer basic tax questions and assist in preparing and filing basic federal and state returns. 

Taxpayers will be required to show photo identification and should bring the following: 

  • A copy of their 2016 returns. 
  • All W-2 and 1099 forms.
  • Amount of residential property tax paid in 2017, or if renting, the amount of rent paid in 2017 and the name and address of their landlord.
  • Proof of health care coverage for all members of their household. 
This free service will take place at the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library, 220 North Union Street, Kokomo, beginning on February 1, 2018, and continuing until April 17, 2018. Volunteers will be available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on an appointment-only basis. Beginning January 16, taxpayers may call 765-626-0841 to schedule an appointment.
