AARP Mid-Shore Tax-Aide sites set to open for 2016 tax sea­son

Times-Record - - News -

— The AARP MidShore Tax-Aide pro­gram will op­er­ate from thru April 17 at sev­eral times and lo­ca­tions.

AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest, free vol­un­teer­run tax as­sis­tance ser­vice. It is of­fered to low- and mod­er­ate-in­come tax­pay­ers with spe­cial at­ten­tion to those age 60 and older.

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-deduct- ible ex­penses.

In ad­di­tion to th­ese doc­u­ments, bring proof of iden­tity, which can in­clude a state-is­sued driver’s li­cense or state-is­sued 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 ex- emp­tions re­ceived from the IRS or mar­ket­place, as well.
