  • AARP Tax Counseling for Moorestown and Maple Shade Residents

    Each year, AARP volunteers offer free assistance to low and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those 60 and older, with the preparation of their tax returns. You do not have to be a member of AARP or a senior to use the program. The certified volunteers assist with Federal tax returns, State Tax returns, Homestead Rebate applications and Property Tax Reimbursement applications. The counseling will take place every Friday from February 3rd through April 14th 2017 at the Hope Community Church, 235 West Main St, Moorestown (next to the CVS and opposite the Wawa). There is ample parking behind the Church that can be accessed from either Main St. or 2nd St (use the door at the back of the Church – which is on ground level – to enter the room where the program will take place). As has been the practice, in an effort to reduce waiting times, appointments will be required. To sign up for the program, call the Moorestown Clerk’s office at 856-235-0912, extension 3002, after January 1st, 2017 during normal business hours. Appointments will be made for the program with the first appointment at 9:00 AM and the last appointment at 12:45 PM.  When coming for your appointment, bring a photo ID, your tax return from last year (2015) and the tax booklets received from the Federal and State tax offices along with supporting paperwork for this year’s (2016) return. Affordable Care Act participants must bring Form 1095-A. If itemizing, bring backup information. If filing jointly, both parties must be present.
