Volunteers from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) will provide free tax assistance to all taxpayers with middle and low income with special attention to those ages 60 and older.

To receive help filing federal, state, local taxes, or rent rebate applications, taxpayers must bring copies of their income and any other information pertaining to the tax year 2011.

If you bought anything on the Internet, from catalogs or out of state that would be taxable to Pennsylvania and you didn't pay tax on it, bring your receipts showing these purchases or have the amount available to give to the tax counselor.

Clients should bring a copy of their 2010 tax return, as well as their property taxes for 2011.

Tax help will be available beginning Feb. 1 through April 15 at the following sites:

Carlisle Baptist Church, 701 Walnut Bottom Road, Carlisle, on Mondays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call Bette at 243-5523 to make an appointment.

. South Middleton Township Building 520 Park Drive, Boiling Springs, on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call the township building at 258-5324 to schedule an appointment.
