Beginning in February, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will provide free tax assistance and preparation for Kauai County taxpayers with low to moderate incomes at nine locations on the Garden Island.

Now in its 45th year, AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, with special attention to people 60 and older. You do not have to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this free service.

“Tax-Aide volunteers provide a tremendous boost to both individuals and our local economy by helping low- and moderate income residents with their taxes,” said AARP Hawaii State President Gerry Silva.

Last year in Hawaii, AARP Foundation Tax Aide volunteers helped more than 16,000 residents file their federal and state returns, generating more than $5.8 million in total refunds and more than $1.1 million Earned Income Tax Credits. Nationally, Tax-Aide volunteers helped taxpayers get $1.3 billion in income tax refunds in 2013, and more than $244 million in EITCs.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure they understand the latest changes and additions to the U.S. Tax Code.

Low to moderate income is defined as households that are at or below 80 percent of Kauai median household income.
