AARP offers free tax help at library
Each year, volunteers with the American Association of Retired Persons partner with the Coweta Public Library System to offer free preparation and electronic filing of basic individual federal and state income tax returns.
The services are offered every Wednesday at the Powell Library in Newnan and every Thursday at the Central Library in Sharpsburg, starting this week and running through April 10. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
There will also be a special free filing day at the Heard County Public Library on March 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The service is open to all ages.
Those wishing to take advantage of the free filing should bring copies of their 2012 returns, W-2 forms, Social Security cards or other verification for all household members, receipts and canceled checks for all itemized deductions, all 1099 forms and another needed documentation.
