AARP Free Income Tax Assistance Volunteers win Moorheart Award

Post Date:05/13/2024 7:00 pm

Congratulations to the AARP Free Income Tax Assistance Volunteers. On May 13, the Moorhead City Council and Mayor Shelly Carlson presented them with the MoorHeart award.

AARP is committed to assisting Moorhead residents through the difficulties of tax season. AARP has shown continued dedication to helping our community through years of providing this affordable and educational service. AARP’s nomination includes the following statement:

The certified IRS volunteers begin training months ahead of time. Once tax season starts, they volunteer tirelessly 4 days a week for 2.5 months to prepare and electronically file income tax returns. In 2024, they completed 353 tax returns (242 clients were over 60 years old) at the Moorhead Senior Center and 666 tax returns (436 clients were over 60 years old) at the Moorhead Public Library. In addition to providing tax services, volunteers will also generously bring refreshments for taxpayers to enjoy while they wait.

By offering personalized guidance, their free tax services ensure that citizens in Moorhead and neighboring communities are able to maximize their refunds and credits. The certified IRS volunteers that come together to provide this valuable service shine with MoorHeart generosity.

For all AARP does for Moorhead the MoorHeart selection committee chose AARP to receive the MoorHeart Award. AARP is a great example of the MoorHeart spirit. Thank you, AARP, for your impactful services provided year after year!

The MoorHeart award is an opportunity to recognize individuals who go above and beyond to demonstrate community within our City by their actions and service. A team of volunteers from city boards and commissions selects award recipients. The MoorHeart award is commemorated with a piece of art commissioned from local artist Dennis Krull especially for this purpose.

Information on nominating individuals/organizations for the MoorHeart award can be found at (Search for MoorHeart Award.) Contributions large and small are worthy of nomination!
