U.S. Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler announced today that her office is offering coastal residents a free IRS Tax Prep Workshop on Friday, February 21 from 12:00 – 5:00 pm at the Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum in Ilwaco. Tax experts will be on hand to help residents file taxes, prepare tax returns, and will be available to answer any IRS or individual tax-related questions.

“Filing taxes can be a challenge, so I’m pleased to partner with the IRS and AARP Foundation Tax-Aide to offer this resource to coastal residents as they navigate this year’s tax season,” Herrera Beutler said. “Whether you’re new to filing taxes, or if you’ve filed them a dozen times and still have questions, experts will be on hand at this event and ready to assist.” 

The IRS Stakeholder Partnership Education and Communication (SPEC) is responsible for overseeing AARP’s Tax Aide, the nation’s largest tax assistance program. Volunteers assisting residents file or prepare taxes under AARP Tax Aide are certified by the IRS. Through these programs, thousands of volunteers have provided Americans free tax assistance and helped prepare millions of U.S. federal and state tax returns.

Although Tax Aide is under the AARP Foundation, it is not limited to retirees; residents of all ages are welcome.
