I am a caregiver to my mother full-time.
Now it's tax season. This is the first
time we will be doing her tax return.
We have no idea how to go about it. Should
she file separately or can we include her as
a dependent on our tax return? Are there any
free phone numbers or advisors?

contact you local area agency on aging, AARP tax volunteers will be able to assist you wtih your mother's taxes, they will also be able to answer the questions you have. I'm over 50 and have them to do mine. They are very helpful, if the local AAA doesn't know, contact AARP they can give you the site of the nearest volunteers.

The IRS has a program called VITA, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. To find a site near you, call 1-800-906-9887. You can also Google VITA to find the page on the IRS site. They should be able to help you. If there isn't a site near you, you can try calling the IRS.

If you call or go to the IRS website, they have Vitae volunteers who assist with preparing tax returns for FREE. Also, AARP has volunteers that help with tax returns for FREE as well. Good luck!

Call your local office on aging. We have volunteers from their office that come and do taxes for our seniors every year. It's free and easy to schedule an appointment to get your questions answered.

There are local AARP members that file taxes for free at our local senior center. Also, at our university, the accounting students will file for free as well. Both options I believe would be able to advise you on how to file.
