You can meet with volunteers who will offer advice and even prepare some of the routine tax forms for you. You do not have to be an AARP member or a senior citizen to take advantage of this service.

Tax-Aide volunteers trained and certified by the IRS will provide free income tax assistance at many sites throughout the Orange and Seminole County area starting in February 2012.

Individuals seeking assistance should bring pertinent tax documents such as a copy of last year's income tax return; forms showing income earned, pensions and Social Security; 1099 Forms showing interest and dividends; current tax information package mailed to them by the IRS; Photo ID and Social Security cards for all those listed on their return.
