RSVP Program Logo

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of West Suburban Cook and Southern DuPage Counties, sponsored by Triton College in River Grove, once again is offering the Internal Revenue Service’s Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE), a free program for individuals age 60 and older from low-to-moderate income households.

RSVP has provided this program for more than 20 years in partnership with the IRS. Volunteer tax assistors are specially trained to help people complete their taxes. The volunteer tax assistors are individuals who are older adults as well as college-aged students. The assistance includes helping participants complete federal tax forms and the state income tax forms. All tax returns are submitted electronically once completed.

Triton RSVP Volunteers are available to talk about the process Monday - Thursday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm and Friday from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon at 708-456-0300 extension 3895. Village Staff cannot take any appointments for this program -- if you are interested you must call to drop off your paperwork or make an appointment for Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday. 

When you visit Triton you can drop your tax materials off at Triton College and pick them up the following week..

After participants make an appointment, they will be requested to bring with them their Social Security Benefits Statement or Social Security Cards, W-2 forms from all employers, Form 1099s (interest statements from banks), a copy of last year’s tax return and any other relevant tax information.
