The AARP Foundation will again offer free tax assistance this year at the Glendale Adult Center, 5970 W. Brown St., and at the O’Neil Recreation Center, 6448 W. Missouri Ave.

The Tax-Aide program volunteers will provide free, basic assistance with filing federal and state taxes online. This service is open to anyone, but is primarily aimed at moderate- and low-income people ages 60 and older. All volunteer preparers are IRS-trained and certified. Please note that volunteers cannot assist with business or complicated individual returns. Reference the following website for a list of the materials needed to complete your tax return: aarp.org/taxaide.

Service is provided on a walk-in first-come, first-served basis, at the following city of Glendale facilities during the following days/times:

• Glendale Adult Center – Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, through April 11, 8 a.m.–2 p.m.

• O’Neil Recreation Center – Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 22 through April 13, 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m.
