CCH offering tax assistance

Catholic Charities Hawaii (CCH) is teaming up with two prominent nonprofit organizations, AARP and Goodwill, to provide tax assistance for Hawaii seniors and CCH housing clients.

Hawaii seniors and other community members who need expert assistance with preparing their 2018 tax returns by the April 15 federal tax deadline have two Catholic Charities Hawaii (CCH) locations available to them, thanks to AARP Foundation Tax-Aide.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, will provide free tax assistance and preparation to Hawaii taxpayers with low to moderate incomes, with special attention to people 60 and older. You do not have to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this free service.

Walk-in and call-ahead appointments are being taken at CCH’s Hawaii Island office in Kailua-Kona at 73-5618 Maiau Street, Suite B201 (above Costco), on Tuesdays only through April 9, from noon to 4 p.m. For an appointment, call 319-3013.
