AARP Tax Help isn't just for AARP members!

The Baldwin Boettcher Library confused many of our customers.  The AARP tax help is free and is offered to anyone who may need help getting their taxes done.  This free service is not just for AARP members.  You must have the social security cards of all the people on the return, have your 2009 tax return and finally gather all your 2010 tax papers, such as 1099's W2's, house information for those of you who own a home.  Did you contribute to a retirement account?  Bring that too.  Our specially trained AARP tax helpers will complete your taxes and file electronically.  The IRS is encouraging paperless transactions.  So if you want free tax help come on Monday between 1 and 6 pm, Wednesday between 10 am and 5 pm, Friday between 1 and 5 pm and Saturday between 12 and 4 pm.  Our great AARP team will happily file your return.  If you have any questions, call the Baldwin Boettcher Library at 281-821-1320 and we will answe
