Marysville and Arlington residents can take advantage of free tax preparation and filing assistance for taxpayers of all ages through the AARP Tax Aide Program.

Eligible participants include taxpayers of low and moderate income, and active duty and retired military personnel.

Applicants for tax help are not required to be members of AARP, nor retirees, to use this service.

Tax assistance is offered by appointment at the Stillaguamish Senior Center Library. Call 360-653-4551 for an appointment, or stop by in person at the reception desk.

If you’re active duty or retired military, call 425-220-4940 to reserve your meeting time in advance for American Legion Post 178 in Marysville. Walk-ins are welcome at this site.

Taxpayers should bring photo identification, a Social Security card or tax identification number for each person on their returns, W2 and other income statements, 1099 forms, student loan and tuition payment records, mortgage interest and property tax statements, a bank account number for direct deposit of refund, last year’s return if available, and the names, addresses and tax ID numbers of child care providers.

If filing jointly, both spouses must be present to file electronically.
