Free Income Tax Assistance for Seniors Begins Feb. 4

Naperville Park District will provide free tax filing assistance to seniors by appointment only from February 4 through April 10, 2019. Volunteers trained through the AARP Tax-Aide program will be available to meet with individuals from 9:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center.

Those interested in scheduling a 45-minute appointment for tax assistance may call the Naperville Park District at 630-848-3613. Membership in AARP is not required.

Like thousands of other volunteers across the country, the local AARP Tax-Aide volunteers complete training courses in aspects of tax law with materials supplied by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The volunteers provide free electronic filing services using IRS software that also is used by many paid professionals.

Individuals who register for tax assistance are asked to bring all necessary paperwork to their appointment, including the following:

  • Last year’s tax return and tax records
  • A photo ID for each adult who will be listed on the tax return
  • Proof of Social Security number (i.e., Social Security card, Social Security 1099 form, or  Medicare card) for each individual and dependent listed on the tax return
  • Checking account routing number for direct deposit information
  • Income documents, including W-2, 1099, etc.
  • Information about tax-deductible items, including dependents, interest, real estate tax bill, state tax bill, charitable donation receipts, etc.
  • Those who acquired healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) must present Form 1095 showing proof of coverage

Tax assistance is one of many free and low-cost programs for seniors offered by the Naperville Park District.  Details can be found in the District’s Winter Program Guide or in the Senior Program Guide available online at www.napervilleparks.org or at one of the following Naperville Park District facilities:

Funds raised through the Naperville Parks Foundation support the Naperville Park District’s Fee Assistance Program. The Naperville Parks Foundation supports the recreation needs and desires of the residents of Naperville – encouraging health and wellness, fitness, family time, and fun. The Foundation supports the mission of making recreation of all kinds accessible to everyone across the community, regardless of socioeconomic circumstances.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
