Tax aid available
Tax Aid through the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is available each week in Blackfoot and Fort Hall. There is no charge for this service.
"All taxes are prepared on a first come, first served basis," lead preparer Harrison Gerstlauer said. "People will be asked to sing-in on a sheet when they arrive."
