The tax preparation season has officially rolled in for AARP volunteers.

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide service started preparing tax returns Monday in the Sun City Community Assistance Network office.

“We generally work from 8 o’clock until 2 or until we have the first 50 people come through to have their taxes done,” said Jim Graff of Sun City, an AARP volunteer. “They go through a three-step process.

“Intake will make sure they have all their documents, counselors will prepare the return and the quality review will verify our work.”

Graff said there are 17 to 20 volunteers a day, and SCCAN is providing the space for them plus the telephones and copy machine. The computers they use are on loan from the Internal Revenue Service.

He said the first day was busy. “We reached our maximum at about 10:30 or 11 this morning.”

Close to 2 p.m. there were still five people, holding their place numbers, waiting to have their returns prepared. Sun Citian Katherine Berry said she’d been there since 10 a.m. but didn’t seem to mind. “Which is pretty good. I think it’s not bad.

“Somebody earlier here, had been here for almost eight hours. But they were very early people, they had come before it opened, so of course, it was really going to be longer that way,” she said.

Getting your taxes prepared is on a first-come, first-served basis. “If you forget something at home, it’s going to bump you,” Berry said.

Visitors lose their place in line if they need to leave for any reason. “We thought maybe we could go for lunch,” Berry said. Her number was called after 2 p.m.

The Tax-Aide service is the nation’s largest free, volunteer tax-assistance program and will be available Monday through Thursday including April 15 at 10195 W. Coggins Drive in Sun City. The returns are electronically filed.

Should Arizona lower the age when teens can obtain driving permits?

Arizona House Bill 2080 would allow teenagers as young as 15 to obtain a driving permit, only letting them drive with a licensed operator who is 21 years or older. The current driving permit age limit is 15 years, 6 months. Is this change a good idea?
