Taxes and Medicare

We are a location for AARP Tax Preparation. Any senior with a modest or low income may call the office starting in mid-January for an appointment with a trained counselor. In 2019, AARP serviced nearly 300 people at SASC. You may call 734-429-9274 after January 13 to make an appointment for 2020.

The AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide tax assistance is provided by trained volunteers in partnership with the IRS, and is geared toward seniors and modest-income taxpayers.  The volunteers do Federal and Michigan 1040 forms and credits, and amended returns.  The returns will be sent electronically, and you will receive a paper copy to take home for your files.  They are able to do some simple business returns (Schedule C – except for rental income, depreciation, inventory, farm income, home offices, or a net loss). They can also offer advice if you are doing your own return and have questions.  They are not able to do non-resident-alien returns or state returns other than Michigan. AARP membership is not required. 

*For joint returns, IRS policy is that both spouses must be present

 

*If you have 2 tax returns to be done (such as yours and an elderly parent’s), schedule 2 sequential time slots – the second following the first.  (Will need a Power of Attorney for anyone who cannot come to the site.)

 

Call SASC beginning January 13 to make an appointment. Appointments taken on Monday, February 17, will take place at the Saline District Library as the SASC Office is closed for Presidents’ Day.
