Tax Day is just around the corner, but if you are like thousand of others across the country that wait until the last minute, you will be happy to know that the Macon County AARP will offer free tax assistance through April 18. That’s right. For all of us procrastinators, there are actually three extra days this year! Why not the usual April 15 deadline? Well, to make a long story short, Friday is Emancipation Day in Washington D.C., so we all get a break.

For the past 31 years, the local chapter of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has offered a free tax assistance program in Franklin.

In fact, though special consideration is given to the elderly, the service is offered to all low and moderate income families.
