AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers in Brainerd will prepare income tax, renters’ property tax refund and Homestead Credit Refund (for homeowners) forms free of charge to anyone, with a special focus on taxpayers who are 50 or older or who have low to moderate income.

Appointments and masks are required at tax appointments. Call the Brainerd Public Library at 218-829-5574 and ask for a tax appointment after Jan. 10.

Before the appointment, pick up an intake packet at Westgate Mall. The intake packet contains more detailed instructions, forms and worksheets. Intake packets will be available on a cabinet in front of the old Vanity store after Jan. 10. The tax appointments will be at Westgate Mall in the old Vanity store site. For those who are married, both spouses must be present for the first appointment for signatures and identification.

Income tax returns for tax years 2018-2021 as well as renters’ property tax refunds and Homestead Credit Refunds for tax years 2020-2021 can be filed.

For the 2021 tax year property tax refund, a 2022 property tax statement is needed, which will be available in late March.
