Mayor Domenic J. Sarno announces that AARP will once again be partnering with the Department of Elder Affairs to provide seniors with free tax preparation and electronic tax filing beginning February 9, 2017 and going through April 13, 2017. 

Mayor Sarno stated, “Whether young or ‘wise in years of wisdom,’ filing our taxes can be complicated. I thank and commend Director Jan Denney, Elder Affairs and AARP for their continued and dedicated efforts towards our senior citizen population.”

The AARP free tax preparation is for low-income residents who are aged 55 or older.  Due to limited space and time, only persons with appointments can be seen. To make an appointment, please call (413) 784-4769 on Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Calls outside of the above core hours will go directly to voicemail and the caller will be called back the following during hours of normal business operations. 

IMPORTANT: Any calls received after 2:30 pm Thursday, will not be called back until Monday morning. 

Voicemail Callers:  Speak slowly and clearly and repeat name and number twice.
