Once again, Shepherd’s Center of Charlotte is partnering with AARP to provide free tax preparation for those who need it. This year, we are being hosted by Waltonwood of Cotswold, 5215 Randolph Road, Charlotte, NC 28211. Appointments are required, and are available on Mondays and Tuesdays, at 10:00, 11:00, 12:00 and 1:00 through April 11; we are unable to accommodate any walk-ins.

What’s happening at the Shepherd’s Center?

The Shepherd’s Center staff is eagerly getting ready for:

  • Trips! “On the Go” is going to the historic Oaklawn Cemetery mausoleum, the Duke Energy Explorium and WingHaven. Day trips are to a charming tea house in Ridgeway, SC, the Biltmore Estate, and since folks were disappointed the Sandhills Gardens trip was cancelled in 2016, there’s a trip there too. We’re exploring overnight trips to Flat Rock (late August) and Atlanta (early October). Stay tuned for more information!
  • New payment option! IF your total amount paid is $100.00 or more, you may charge that to a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover). Payors may be subject to a 3% convenience fee. Call for more information about this.

Call the Shepherd’s Center office at 704-365-1995 for more information.
