AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation program, is preparing for the upcoming tax season. Tax-Aide makes it easier for older, low-income taxpayers to file their tax returns and get the credits and deductions they’ve earned.
Taxpayers need not be retired or AARP members to use the program. IRS-certified volunteers provide free, in-person assistance at 5,000 sites in senior centers, libraries, and other convenient locations across the country. We are preparing to provide tax assistance at multiple sites in the Washington County area beginning on or around February 1, 2018 and be available into April of 2018.
Additionally, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, is looking for compassionate and friendly people to expand our team of local volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Volunteers assist by helping prepare tax returns or serving in other ways, like organizing client paperwork, managing computer equipment, acting as interpreters, or making sure everything runs smoothly. There’s a role for everyone with support and training provided.
