For the fourth year, Tax Aide will provide free federal income tax preparation services to area residents of all ages. The dates and times are every Thursday from February 8th to April 12th, from 9am to 2pm, at First United Methodist Church, 201 North Mount St, Fairfield.

Interested residents should bring their tax paperwork (W-2s, 1099’s for income, self employment details, and deduction details), picture ID for taxpayer and spouse, and social security cards for all family members, and 2016 return if available. The 2017 returns will be prepared while you wait and e-filed each evening.

Tax Aide volunteers are sponsored by AARP and trained and certified through IRS sponsored programs. Tax Aide now has over 35,000 volunteers at 5,000 sites nationwide that assist in preparing tax returns. For information, go to
