Tax Aide


The 2009 tax season will be my fifth as a tax aide in the VITA program, co-sponsored by AARP and the IRS.From February 1 through April 15 I will spend two days each week working up peoplesí federal and Oregon tax returns.


Contrary to rumor, there is no age limit (upper or lower) on our clients, nor is there an income limit.But we decline complex returns with features we are not trained for.AARP supplies the bodies (like me); the IRS supplies the computers and software; their payoff is that we file almost all returns electronically, thus saving work for them!
