Get Help with Your Taxes from Tax-Aide

02/03/2019 2:47 PM | Anonymous


As if taxes weren’t confusing enough, this year the new tax rules take effect for our 2018 tax filings,  AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free, individualized tax preparation for low-to moderate-income taxpayers - especially those 50 and older - at nearly 5,000 locations nationwide. The program is funded through grants from AARP Foundation and the Internal Revenue Service. Find a location near you by searching below.

Before visiting a Tax-Aide site, please note:

  • You will need to bring your important documents to the site. Access the complete list.
  • Federal Tax assistance is available at all locations. State tax assistance is available at all locations in your state for in-state residents, and may be available to out-of-state residents in select neighboring states. Please contact sites in your neighboring state to confirm availability.
  • Site hours are subject to change on a weekly basis. Therefore, please check again the day before you plan to go to the site.

The tax preparers, called counselors, receive about five days of training and IRS certification on basic tax preparation and issues.  If you have been doing your own taxes, are comfortable with numbers and computers, and working with the public being a volunteer tax preparer might be a great opportunity. 

To find a Tax-Aide location near you or to volunteer, call 1-888-227-7669 or visit www.aarp.org/findtaxhelp
