AARP offers tax filing assistance
CENTREVILLE — AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest, free volunteer-run tax assistance service. It is offered to lowand moderate-income taxpayers with special attention to those age 60 and older.
The AARP Mid-Shore Tax-Aide program will operate through April 17 at two locations in Queen Anne’s County:
• The Kramer Center in Centreville. Call 410-758-0848 to set up an appointment between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Fridays.
• The Grasonville Senior Center. Call 410-827-6010 to set up an appointment between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesdays.
The program’s volunteers assist with filing Form 1040 and standard Schedule A, B, C — within limits — and Schedule D. Taxpayers should bring a copy of their 2016 federal and state individual income tax returns, 2016 Form W-2, 1099, 1098 and Schedule K-1, if you receive one, along with documents that show tax-deductible expenses.
In addition to these documents, bring proof of identity, which can include a state-issued driver’s license or stateissued identity card and Social Security card, for all exemptions and dependents. All Social Security cards must be original documents. No photocopies will be accepted.
Additionally, bring information on health care coverage for you, your spouse and all dependents. If you did not have health care coverage for the full year, bring information on what months you had coverage. If you purchased insurance from a marketplace or exchange, bring Form 1095A, B or C. Bring any health care exemptions received from the IRS or marketplace, as well.
