The AARP Foundation is offering free tax services to senior citizens in York County through its Tax-Aide Program.

York County residents who are at least 50 years old are eligible for free aid, according to a Tuesday, Feb. 4, York City news release. Residents have until April 25 to file their 2019 tax returns.

An AARP membership is not required. Although volunteers are trained to handle most personal income tax returns, they are not able to file business returns.

York County taxpayers should bring their photo identification and proof of Social Security or ITIN numbers for anyone on the tax return.
