NCW - Free tax preparation is now offered locally for moderate to low-income taxpayers.

AARP Tax Aide volunteers are providing services. Volunteers pass three tax certification tests, a Washington State Patrol background check and an ethics exam to become certified.

This is the local AARP site's eighth year filing returns electronically. Last year the site electronically filed 237 returns.

Appointments are required. No walk-ins will be accepted. Area tax prep sites are located in Bridgeport, Twisp and Omak.

The Bridgeport site will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Thursday, as well as Feb. 14 and Feb. 21. It's located at the EPIC Center, 1400 Columbia Ave. For questions or to make an appointment, call Linda Limbeck at (509) 662-6156 ext. 238.

The Twisp AARP site is located at St. Genevieve Parish on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For appointments, call (509) 997-3352.

The Omak AARP site is located at the Wenatchee Valley College computer lab on Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For appointments, call (509) 322-3439.

You will need to bring the following with you: A photo ID for the taxpayer (and spouse if filing jointly), Social Security cards or IRS letters assigning ITINs for taxpayer(s) and all dependents, birthdates of taxpayers and dependents, wage and earning statements from all employers (W-2, W-2G, 1099-R, etc.), interest and dividend statements from your banks (1099), a copy of last year's return if possible, bank routing and account numbers if you wish you have your refund directly deposited, any amount paid for daycare and the daycare provider's tax identification number, and any other relevant information about income and expenses.
