Tax Preparation Resources

1.) Newton Senior Center’s AARP Volunteer Tax Program

The Senior Center’s AARP tax program runs on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, by appointment only.

The program is intended to help low-to-mid-income seniors – less than $70,000 for individual returns or $85,000 for joint returns – who have simple returns. If you have foreign pensions, more than $25,000 in schedule C expenses, sold a home last year, or have more than 14 days of rental income other than land, we cannot do your taxes.

Appointments can be made by calling 617-796-1662. Once you make an appointment, you will receive a confirmation letter mailed that lists all the documents you will need and other criteria to ensure that your tax return is within the scope of this program. On the day of your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early, with your paperwork in order.
