FREE Tax Preparation Service

FREE Tax Preparation Service
TRI-CITIES -- Less than a week remains for Americans to file their tax returns. For some, that means a big refund. But for many, it's just one more thing they have to pay for.

But there are nearly a dozen sites around the Tri Cities where you can get your taxes done for FREE. The AARP's Tax Aide program offers the service for anyone, regardless of age or income.

"People they love the price, because it's free! But they also think we're very helpful," says Tax Aide Volunteer Wanda Westermeyer. "A lot of people try to do it themselves, and then they come in and have us check it. And often times, we're able to show them something they didn't know about."

This year's filing deadline is April 18. But the Tax Aide program only runs through the Saturday the 15th. Call each location for specific scheduling information.
