UPDATED: Times and days are updated in this article, courtesy of the district coordinator of the AARP Tax-Aide Program for Alpharetta, Milton, Johns Creek and Roswell.
Need help with your personal taxes? Stop by the Adult Activity Center at North Park or the Crabapple Senior Center near the Alpharetta/Milton city limits. But first you'll need an appointment for the free help.
Volunteers from the IRS-VITA and the AARP Foundation host the free tax aide program, providing assistance and e-filing of both federal and state returns for people making up to $49,000 per year and senior citizens.
Bring the following documents: Last Year's Tax Return, Photo ID, Blank Check for Direct Deposit. First time clients should bring Social Security cards for every individual claimed on the return.
In 2011, the tax aide program at Fulton library branches alone helped nearly 3,000 patrons.
