AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation's largest volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service. And we want you to join us.
We started in 1968 with just four volunteers at one site preparing 100 tax returns. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide now involves more than 35,000 volunteers and serves 2.6 million taxpayers annually at nearly 6,000 sites nationwide. In fact, we're one of the most effective volunteer programs in America.
But even though we've grown a lot, we're still all about the grassroots. You'll be helping people in your own community with a much-needed service that's free, individualized and has no strings attached.
Who will you help as a volunteer?
Almost four out of five people who turn to AARP Foundation Tax-Aide are 60 or older. Household incomes aren't high. For many of them, a tax refund could mean they won't have to choose between paying for groceries and keeping the lights on.
People like you. And there's a role for everyone.
Good with numbers? Be a tax volunteer.
You'll work with taxpayers directly; filling out tax returns and helping them seek a refund. Experience isn't necessary — we'll train you on the latest tax preparation forms and software.
Skilled in all things digital? Be a technology coordinator.
You'll manage computer equipment, ensure taxpayer data security and provide technical assistance to volunteers at multiple sites.
Love working with people? Be a greeter.
You'll welcome taxpayers, help organize their paperwork and manage the overall flow of service.
Want to help us get the word out? Be a communications coordinator.
You'll promote AARP Foundation Tax-Aide and recruit volunteers in your community.
Have a knack for running things? Be a leadership or administrative volunteer.
Manage volunteers, make sure program operations run smoothly, track volunteer assignments and site activities, and maintain quality control.
Speak a second language? You're urgently needed!
We have a big demand for bilingual speakers. Dedicated translators who can assist our volunteers are also welcome.
