Free tax help on the way

The AARP Tax-Aide program offers free personal tax preparation assistance to taxpayers of low to middle incomes including those filing as single, head of household, married filing jointly or students, with special attention to those ages 60 and older.
Volunteer tax counselors will be available by appointment at the Hollister Community Center, 300 West St., on Tuesday afternoons and all day Wednesdays between Feb. 2 and April 6. Those seeking help with their taxes should call (831) 265-7002.
Coming to the appointment, residents should bring 2014 federal and state returns; a valid photo I.D., Social Security cards, all income statements, receipts for itemized deductions, information/documentation about health insurance coverage, and a check showing routing/account numbers to receive a direct deposit of a refund. Volunteer counselors are not trained to assist in preparing tax returns that report business, rental or partnership income.
