Free tax help is available at more than 285 locations across Ohio between Feb. 1 and April 15.

 

While Tax-Aide’s focus is on low-to-moderate income senior citizens, the service is available to anyone, regardless of income or age. You do not need to be a member of AARP; and you will not be asked if you are a member.
