Income Tax Preparation Program

Please note that due to COVID-19, AARP made the decision to cancel the income tax preparation program for this year at most locations throughout the Capital District. You will need to find an alternative way to get your 2020 income taxes prepared & filed. If you should have any questions regarding this, please call our office at (518) 459-3977.
