Palos Verdes Free 2019 Income Tax Preparation
The Palos Verdes Peninsula Senior Center is once again offering free income tax preparation to Palos Verdes homes owners through the AARP Tax-Aide Program. These one hour sessions are held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. beginning February 8, 2020, and ending on April 11, 2020. In order to take advantage of this free program, you must have all your tax documents for 2019 in hand before going in. You are also required to bring copies of your 2018 Federal and State income tax returns. It is open to all ages including seniors, but remember that space will be limited and you must bring your tax documents including income from wages, social security, pensions, IRA’s, dividends and interest. If you sold stock or mutual funds in 2019, you must bring documentation that shows your cost basis in the investment sold.
They are able to prepare a 1040, Schedules A, B, C & D, & Schedule C only if you have no inventory, no employees, less than $10,000 in expenses and no net loss. If you are filing a joint return remember to bring your spouse.
As in prior years, they will have tax preparation sessions on a first come, first served basis so plan accordingly and make sure you are available to wait for an opening. For more information, contact the Peninsula Seniors Center on Monday through Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at (310) 377-3003 or go to www.pvseniors.org.
While at the center please note all the activities that are offered. Whether it’s free movies, bingo, exercise classes, lectures, day trips, travel adventures, continued learning, writer’s group, coffee & cars, Mahjong or even ping pong, there is something for everyone offered through this wonderful program.
