So, will the AARP Tax Aid program volunteer to help do our taxes this year?
We had initially tried to answer the above Probe question last week and weren’t able to confirm whether or not the AARP Tax Aid program was going to set up shop at the newly opened library.
As it turns out, AARP volunteers will not be offering free tax services this year. But, Campesinos Unidos has stepped up to the plate and beginning Feb. 14 will be offering free tax services at the El Centro Public Library. We’re told that volunteers will be on site on Wednesdays and Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. Exact details were kind of scarce as of this writing, but a library representative did state that free tax services would indeed become available. We can’t say for certain how long these services would be offered, but in the past they had carried over into mid-April.
As for the AARP volunteers, the library staffer we spoke with wasn’t able to say why the group no longer was able to provide their services. For further information about the tax services call the library at 760-337-4565.
