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
Before coming to your appointment, please review the COVID-screening criteria, and cancel your appointment if you answer YES to any of the questions. We will work with you to reschedule your appointment if this happens.
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, however, you receive a letter from the IRS about a return that we helped you with last season, and you have questions, 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.
