AARP Tax-Aide Preparation

IRS trained and certified AARP volunteers will meet with individuals of all ages at no cost to prepare Federal and State tax forms for electronic filing.  Registration is required.

Guidelines and Restrictions

They reserve the right to deny service for returns that are too complex or extensive. 

They cannot assist taxpayers with:

  • Returns for other states
  • Returns that involve rental income, farm income, business activity other than sole proprietorships with expenses less than $25,000, or depreciation
