Income Tax Aid?

Posted: September 17, 2015 in Uncategorized

Dear faculty,

As editor of WWL, I was approached by Al Brill, a local man who volunteers for AARP as a tax preparer for seniors.  He asked if I would ask faculty if they might wish to volunteer to be tax preparers as well.   It’s a huge and helpful service especially to low-income seniors in the area.

Thanks for reading!


Dear Cuesta Faculty,

The AARP/IRS Tax-Aide program has been providing free tax preparation services, primarily to low and middle income individuals and families for almost 40 years. It does so with its 35,000 volunteers working at almost 5,000 locations across the country. While the target market is seniors, locally we file tax returns for 18 year-old college students as well as seniors in their 90’s.

While the target is low to middle income individuals and couples, we often file returns for people with no, or very low income, as well as some with upper middle-income, depending upon their circumstances.
We prepare tax returns for individuals and couples with W-2 forms (salaries, etc.)  and most 1099 forms (retirement, social security, investments income, etc.).

AARP membership IS NOT required to use our services.

All of this with volunteers who are mostly retired.

We look for people who are:
1.         PC/Windows savvy
2.         Good with numbers
3.         Well organized
4.         Good with people

If that’s you, we’d like to talk to you.

We provide laptops and printers.
There is a five day training class in January.
After that we expect a commitment to work one day a week starting on February 1, 2016 and work through April 15th.  It is the same day each week at the same location.
