Tax Help for Older People in Waltham Forest

What does it do?

The charity Tax Help for Older People provides free tax advice to older people (over 60) on low incomes (less than £20,000 a year household income).

Tax Help aims to help people across the whole country and now offers surgeries in Waltham Forest.

Tax Help has over 550 volunteer advisers across the United Kingdom, most of them currently practising or retired tax professionals, including retired HM Revenue and Customs staff. Volunteers give their time and expertise free of charge because they recognise how difficult the tax system can be for older people who can’t afford professional advice and want to use their skills to benefit the community.

Anyone wanting advice can ring 0845 601 3321 or 01308 488066. 

Tax Help will answer simple questions over the telephone. For other problems a meeting with a volunteer adviser will be arranged at Age UK Waltham Forest’s rooms at Peterhouse Community Centre, 122 Forest Rise, Upper Walthamstow, London, E17 3PW. For anyone unable to travel because of disability, a home visit can be arranged.

Tax Help advice is free, independent and confidential. Advice can be give on any tax matter, large or small. If you are worried about tax, Tax Help is here to help.
