AARP Tax Aide Services:

Late January, 2024.

Tax-Aide provides free tax preparation service at established sites, including electronic filing of returns, usually during the period from late January to mid-April each year. There are no upper or lower income or age limits for Tax-Aide assistance and there is no requirement to be an AARP member.

Each site is staffed by volunteers who are certified by the IRS. They will prepare any federal return that falls within the scope of our volunteer training which includes most items on Form 1040. Some of the items that are out of scope include rental property income (except land only), farm income, certain income items on Schedule K-1, moving expenses, casualty and theft losses, the Alternative Minimum Tax and loss from a self-employment business. They will also prepare state tax returns for the state in which the site is located, if applicable.
