Sun City residents through the years have been able to get their annual income taxes prepared and filed through the AARP Tax-Aide program within the community.
The Sun City Community Assistance Network, 10195 W. Coggins Drive, provides the location and helps with volunteers for the AARP program. But it does not end when tax season is completed. Tax assistance is available year-round at the Sun City CAN office.
Tax return preparation and filing, as well as additional help, is provided at no charge to senior citizens.
Hugh Duncan, Sun City CAN board president, known first hand how important it is for residents to have someplace to turn with a tax emergency, in addition to the preparation and filing service.
“Years ago, I received one of those dreaded letters from the IRS questioning my previous year’s tax return,” he explained. “Since I had prepared my own tax return, I had no one to turn to with my questions. I remember having sleepless nights and sweaty palms!”
Residents who receive one those letters, help is just around the corner here at Sun City CAN. The agency is also available if residents need to file an amended return or they have tax questions.
Help is provided by appointment only. To make an appointment, call Sun City CAN at 623-933-7530 and and ask to meet with a Tax-Aide representative.
