Last-Minute Free Tax Help Available for Taxpayers on April 15


ANCHORAGE, AK – Taxpayers who visit the Millennium Hotel on April 15 expecting to find the long established tax preparation site will be in for a surprise: No one will be there. A change in management at the Millennium Hotel forced a change in location for volunteer tax preparers. But thanks to the University of Alaska Anchorage, an alternate site has been secured at the University Center Mall, so volunteers from the Alaska Association of Tax Consultants, UAA’s Accounting Club, and AARP Tax Aide will be able to assist taxpayers on April 15 from 12 noon until 11 pm.

“We usually helped several hundred taxpayers at the Millennium,” said Kris Ashley, Senior Stakeholder Relationship Tax Consultant with the Internal Revenue Service in Anchorage. “We need help getting the word out that this site has moved.”

Taxpayers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or something comfortable to sit on while they wait for assistance with their tax return at the University Center Mall location. 

On April 15, there will be three sites in Anchorage:

Anchorage Senior Center

1300 East 19th Avenue, Anchorage

9 am - 3 pm

Northeast Community Center (Muldoon Mall)

1251 Muldoon Road, Anchorage

1 pm - 7 pm

…and now, the new site (and the one open the latest) is located at the University Center Mall

3801 Old Seward Highway (use south entrance), Anchorage

12 noon to 11 pm
