With tax season upon us, Cherry Hill is once again partnering with the AARP to offer Township residents free tax-preparation services twice a week through April 14.
Starting on February 4, every Tuesday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be at Town Hall to assist residents in preparing their 2019 state and federal tax returns, as well as Homestead Rebate, and Property Tax Reimbursement forms.
Appointments are highly suggested and can be made at www.AARP.org/taxaide. A valid photo ID is required. Visitors will be helped on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents should note that the Municipal Building will be closed on April 10 and no tax-preparation session will be held.
AARP and their dedicated volunteers have helped thousands of Cherry Hill residents prepare their annual tax returns for free for more than a decade. Nationally, the AARP estimates that it has helped nearly 50 million low and middle-income Americans since the program’s inception in 1968.
All tax-help sessions will take place in the N. John Amato Council Chambers (Room 208) in the Cherry Hill Township Municipal Building, 820 Mercer Street. Electronic filing and direct deposit services will be available to help expedite seniors’ returns.
Complex returns such as those involving businesses, rental income, and multiple capital gains will not be prepared through this service.
Residents should come prepared with a copy of their 2018 return, all relevant tax statements, receipts and forms; their Social Security card or SSA-1099; and their PTR form, if one was received in the mail.
For more information, residents can contact the AARP by calling (888) AARP-NOW, or visit www.AARP.org/taxaide.
