The Bethany Beach AARP Tax-Aide Program operates at the Parish of St. Ann during tax season. This income tax return preparation and e-file program is available to most taxpayers, free of charge. Our volunteers may only prepare returns for which they have been trained. This training does not include rental property, farm income, or business income that involves depreciation or inventories.
Volunteers prepare Federal and State tax returns on Mondays through Wednesdays from February through April, excluding holidays; specific dates will be announced after January each year. If you are interested, please call 302-858-3575 to schedule an appointment, after the service start date is announced. Do NOT call the Church office for this service.
When you come to your appointment, you MUST bring a photo ID, proof of your Social Security number, the previous year’s Federal and State tax returns and all tax documents you receive (including, but not limited to, W-2’s, 1099 forms, interest, and dividend statements and brokerage statements). If you plan to itemize deductions or think you may be able to itemize deductions, please bring information supporting your potential deductions, such as out-of-pocket medical expenses and medical insurance premiums, payments to qualified charities, home mortgage interest and property taxes. Please summarize and total your deductions prior to your appointment, particularly your medical expenses and charitable contributions.
Information specific to the 2023 tax preparation season can be found in one of our News items here.
