Free tax preparation

Central Lakes College in Brainerd starting Feb. 5 will again serve as a site for free income tax return preparation offered by the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program facilitated by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP). The VITA Program generally offers free tax help to people who make $50,000 or less and need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation to qualified individuals in local communities. For information and to make an appointment for tax preparation in the Business and Industry Center at CLC starting Feb. 5 call (218) 855-8158 or (218) 855-8124.
