HADLEY — Free tax return preparation begins at the Hadley Senior Center in mid-February.

IRS-certified AARP TaxAide counselors will be handling tax returns for tax year 2023 for area residents at the Hadley Senior Center, 46 Middle St., starting Feb. 14 and running through the week of April 10.

Appointment scheduling is underway and there are no restrictions on place of residence or age, though those with returns involving virtual currencies, rental housing income or master limited partnerships will have to seek a paid tax return preparer.

A packet containing a detailed instruction sheet and intake forms will be available for pickup for all scheduled participants in advance of their appointment.

Those eligible and filing for the refundable Massachusetts Circuit Breaker Tax Credit, which has gone up from a $1,200 maximum last year to $2,590 this year, must have all real estate and water and sewer bills.

For more information and to make an appointment, call Administrative Assistant Katherine Abe at 413-586-4023, ext. 8.
