[ARCHIVED] AARP Tax-Aide Program Prepares for New Season with New Location

Volunteers and JCC Officials Cut the ribbon for Tax Aide's new location at Fire Station 1

You’ve got taxes to file, but do-it-yourself software can be confusing, and some paid tax preparation services cost money you might not be able to spend. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide can help. Beginning Jan. 31 and continuing through April 18, AARP Williamsburg Tax Aide will once again be providing in-person tax assistance and preparation, and it’s completely free. The program focuses on seniors as well as low-to-moderate income taxpayers.

Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome at two locations:

Williamsburg Library
515 Scotland Street, Williamsburg, VA 23185

Fire Station #1 (NEW LOCATION*)
3135 Forge Road, Toano, VA 23168

*AARP Williamsburg Tax Aide Volunteers will no longer be at the James City County Library.

Both locations will be open Monday through Friday. Evening hours are being offered on Fridays at Fire Station #1, and Saturday hours are available at the Williamsburg Library. For more details, the phone lines will open Jan. 31.

Tax-Aide is provided in partnership with the IRS, the Williamsburg Regional Library and James City County. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest volunteer-run tax assistance program.   Locally, Williamsburg Tax-Aide has been in operation since 1987. If trends continue, the IRS-certified volunteers expect to prepare approximately 3,000 tax returns during this tax season.
