It's that time of the year again. The dreaded tax season. And if you're anything like me, you may have no clue how or where to begin to get those taxes done. Here's some comfort: AARP is offering free tax preparation to qualified individuals in the Poughkeepsie area.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offering free tax preparation service for low to middle income families, individuals, and seniors, by appointment, at the Boardman Road branch of the Poughkeepsie Library District and at Adriance Memorial Library on Market Street in Poughkeepsie. There is no fee, sales pitch, or age limit, and you do not have to be an AARP member to qualify for this service.

The service will be offered Tuesdays at the Library on 141 Boardman Road Feb. 5 - April 9 from 9:30 am - 4pm, and at Adriance Memorial Library on Fridays through April 12. To schedule an appointment, call (800) 899-1479.
