Free income tax preparation help will be available for area senior citizens in February and March.

The sessions will be held on Fridays at the McKeesport office of state Rep. Austin Davis, located at 627 Lysle Blvd.

The AARP Tax Aide Program will offer the free assistance from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays from Feb. 22 through March 29. Appointments must be made in advance and can be scheduled by calling (412) 664-0035.

Davis said his staff also will be available to help senior citizens with Property Tax or Rent Rebate applications and enroll in any of the state’s programs for which they’re eligible.

“Tax preparation can be costly, confusing and burdensome for our seniors,” Davis said. “I’m proud to partner with AARP tax preparation professionals to offer help to those who need it the most. I’m glad that there’s this opportunity to reduce some of the stress, ease the minds, and hopefully reduce the nervousness many seniors face while doing their state and federal taxes.”
