The Los Altos Senior Center offers free tax assistance Monday mornings through April 15. The service focuses on clients with low to moderate incomes, with an emphasis on those 60 and older, but no one will be turned away because of age or city of residence.
Trained and certified volunteers meet with clients, review their paperwork and records, and prepare and electronically file both federal and California tax returns.
Appointments are required. Call in advance to inquire whether your tax return qualifies. Clients should bring last year’s tax returns, all 2012 tax information and their checkbooks to their appointments.
To make an appointment or for more information, call the Senior Center at 947-2797.
