AARP Tax-Aide is set to begin another year of tax help to low- to moderate-income taxpayers, especially those 60 and older, beginning Feb 3, 2014 in Cobb County.

There is no income limitation and the service is available to everyone. It is free, individualized and no strings attached. In most cases, the tax return is e-filed the same day the return is prepared. There is no charge for this service.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure their knowledge of revisions to the U.S. Tax code.

Many older taxpayers are unaware of the Earned Income Tax Credit or believe they don’t qualify for it. One of the most important forms of income support for the low-income workers, the EITC reduces tax liability and can generate a refund.

You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service.

• Monday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cobb County Senior Wellness Center, 1150 Powder Springs St., Marietta
