The Knoxville area AARP Foundation will offer Tax-Aide, a free tax preparation service, at Pellissippi State Community College this spring to taxpayers of all ages and backgrounds. AARP membership is not required.
Tax preparation assistance will be offered 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays in the Hardin Valley Campus Educational Resources Center (library) on these dates:
- Feb. 11, 18 and 25
- March 4, 11 and 25
- April 1 and 8
The Educational Resources Center is closed on Saturday, March 18, due to the college’s spring break.
Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest free volunteer tax preparation service, offered in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service. Volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS to prepare the forms most taxpayers need. They cannot assist with income tax returns that exceed the scope of their training, however. A list of the forms volunteers cannot prepare is located at volsintax.com. Tax returns will be filed electronically, speeding up the processing and the arrival of any refund.
Appointments are required for this free service. Visit volsintax.com to make an appointment or call 865.229.4429 and leave a message for the appointment volunteers. A map of the Hardin Valley Campus is located at www.pstcc.edu/maps.
