AARP provides free tax preperation services at NeighborImpact Bend & Redmond offices

UPDATE March 13: In order to protect the health of its vulnerable volunteers and clients against Coronavirus, AARP has canceled its free tax preparation services for the remainder of the tax season.

Bend, OR – AARP Foundation is providing free tax-aide to Central Oregon residents from February 3 to April 15.

NeighborImpact helps to facilitate this service by providing an office location for clients to meet with IRS-certified tax preparers. The program is open to taxpayers of all ages and is not limited to AARP members.

Last year NeighborImpact facilitated the preparation of taxes for over a thousand individuals, bringing over $1.1 million to the Central Oregon economy through tax returns averaging $1,030 per household.

AARP will be providing drop-in tax services at the NeighborImpact Bend office on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from February 5 to April 15 and at the NeighborImpact Redmond office by-appointment on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from February 3 to April 14.
