AARP Presents Free Tax Preparation Help in Las Vegas Senior Facilities | Messages

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — Residents can get free tax prep assistance at five community centers in Las Vegas through April 15, the City of Las Vegas said Tuesday.

AARP and Internal Revenue Service Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program volunteers are offering through April 15.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers offer free in-person and virtual tax assistance to anyone, with a special focus on taxpayers over the age of 50 and those on low-to-middle incomes. VITA volunteers are trained to assist with filing tax forms and basic schedules, including 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ, for individuals with taxable income up to $57,000.

AARP and the IRS advise taxpayers with complex tax returns to seek paid tax assistance, the city said.

Participants should bring a copy of their 2020 income tax return, social security card, photo ID, and all documentation applicable to 2021 to the appointment. If married, both spouses must be present to file a joint statement.

Advance bookings are required at all locations. The centers will be closed on February 21 for public holidays.
