Hawthorne’s AARP Tax-Aide closed down April 12, 2023 for tax year 2022 completing another successful year.  We are looking forward to next year. We hope we will be able to operate with less restraints and serve more Hawthorne residents and surrounding neighbors.

We want to thank the dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to provide this free service year after year.  This year we had eleven volunteer preparers and nine volunteer facilitators. Our preparers  filed 635 returns. Over the last nineteen years we have saved tax filers close to $2.4 million in tax filing fees.

We thank all the taxpayers who trust us to prepare their federal returns and file them electronically.

In order to continue our free service, we need new volunteers, both tax preparers and facilitators.  If you would like to join this highly motivated volunteer group, please contact our new AARP Hawthorne Tax-Aide Site Coordinator, Peggy Boccuzzi, at  Peggy will give you details on the skills needed for each position.  You can also sign up at the Hawthorne Information Center, just look for AARP Chapter 1775 Volunteer Opportunities. You don’t need experience in tax law or in preparing taxes.  AARP and the IRS will train you for the necessary certification.

Looking forward to serving you in 2024.  Our reservation line will open up in early January and we will formally open our doors to prepare and file your federal taxes in early February.
