The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program is the nation's largest free, volunteer-run tax preparation service.

What we can and cannot do

Our counselors are trained in many aspects of tax law, but there are a few situations we cannot handle. Check this link to verify that we can help you.

What you need to bring to the appointment

As you know, we need some identity documents -- and lots of other information to complete your returns. See a complete checklist of what you need to bring.

Keep us all safe

If you don't feel well or have been in close contact with someone with Covid, please don't come to your appointment. Just let us know and we will work with you to reschedule.

Need Tax-Aide assistance out-of-season?

Once the tax season is over, our volunteers disperse and our phone lines are no longer monitored. If you receive a letter from the IRS about your tax return after the tax season, check out this IRS TaxTip to understand what you need to do. 

If you still have questions, and we prepared your return last season,  you can contact our site's leaders by calling AARP at 1-888-687-2277. Be sure to tell us what site you went to and what your question is, and someone will get back to you in a few days.
