Tax preparation assistance for people over 60 or for anyone with a moderate income begins Monday, February 11 at the Senior Center in Bemidji. Tax counselors will be available from 9:15 to 3:00 on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from February 11 to April 15. During this time, clients will be on a first come first served basis.
However, we will take appointments for Feb 1, 4, 7 and Feb 8. If you want to come in on one of these days, please call the Senior Center (751-8836) to set up an appointment.
Clients need to bring photo ID, social security cards for all individuals on the return including dependents, copies of all forms of income, information on health insurance coverage and last year’s tax return. This year both husband and wife need to be present to efile a joint return. This is a change from previous years.
If applying for a renter’s credit, the certificate of rent paid (CRP) is also needed.
Individuals wanting to only file a rent rebate are encouraged to wait until March. MN does not process property tax/rental rebates until August.
This free service is provided by the Senior Center, AARP, IRS, AND MN Dept of Revenue. For further information, please call the Senior Center at 751-8836.
