The Ocean County Library will partner with AARP to provide free tax assistance programs in several local branches throughout February, March and mid-April, the county-run system announced Friday.

These programs are open to taxpayers of all ages with special consideration given to those 60 years and older with low to moderate income, the announcement said. Services are provided by IRS-certified volunteers and include tax preparation as well as electronic filing. Participants must bring a photo ID, all relevant tax documents and previous year(s) returns.
