AARP Tax-Aide Is Available in Windsor Township

AARP Foundation will provide free tax return assistance and preparation through its Tax-Aide program in Windsor Township Eaton County beginning January 31st and continuing through April 10. The Tax-Aide program is available to anyone, with a special focus on taxpayers who are over 50 or have low to moderate income. You do not even need to be an AARP member!

Windsor Township is pleased to provide the office space for this Tax-Aide Program. This is not a walk-in program. Beginning January 2, you can call Dorothy Hull Library at 517-646-0633 to make your appointment. Appointments will be held at the Windsor Township Meeting Room, located in the lower level of the Emergency Services building, 300 West Jefferson, Dimondale, MI 48821.

Some tax returns are outside the scope of the Tax-Aide program. If you have rental property, farmland, run a small business, receive a Schedule K-1, or have multiple transactions on an investment account, Tax-Aide may not be able to assist you with filing your tax return. For those tax situations, it is best to contact an alternative tax service.
