AARP Offers Tax Season Relief Submitted: 02/13/2013
Story By Ryan Abney


WOODRUFF - For some of us, tax season can be a frustrating time. Filling out your own forms can be confusing and time-consuming.

The American Association of Retired Persons is giving people with lower income and seniors some tax relief. Every Monday and Wednesday until April 10th, the AARP is filling out tax returns for free. It happens at the Lakeland Senior Center in Woodruff.

AARP Volunteer Chuck Berrigan sees plenty of stressed out people during tax-time. His greatest reward is putting people in a better mood.

"Most of our clients are over sixty. Let's say sixty to a hundred. When they get their taxes done and they know they're finaled right, they feel a lot of relief and are very grateful."

Sandy Seymour has had AARP do her taxes for the last few years. She wants all seniors to take advantage of the service.

"Older people mainly get more confused. Forms get harder and it takes someone who knows what they're talking about and who know how to fill out the forms."

The service is available every Monday and Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

AARP offers tax aid in locations like Rhinelander, Eagle River, Tomahawk and Park Falls.
