Every year, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation sessions for Central Oregonians at the Downtown Bend Library. Last year more than 350 county residents filed their taxes with the help of Tax-Aide—and they received more than $385,000 in tax refunds. Come to the library on Saturdays starting February 8 to learn more about tax credits and have an IRS-certified volunteer prepare your taxes. Taxes are prepared online, using IRS-certified software, and then electronically transmitted to the IRS. If you plan to file your own taxes, certified tax volunteers are also be available to answer some your tax questions.
Walk-in sessions at the Downtown Bend Library run Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the following Saturdays: February 8, February 15, February 22, February 29, March 7, March 14, March 21, March 28, April 4, and April 11.
