Get Free Help Filing Your Taxes

Our IRS-certified Tax-Aide volunteers can help you keep more of the money you’ve earned.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides tax assistance to anyone, free of charge, with a focus on taxpayers who are over 50 and have low to moderate income. You don't need to be an AARP member to use the service. 

Since 1968, Tax-Aide has helped over 78 million taxpayers receive all the credits and deductions they're entitled to. Our volunteers are IRS-certified every year, so they understand the latest changes and additions to the tax code. You can choose to have an IRS-certified volunteer prepare your taxes or provide coaching so you can prepare them yourself.  

Tax-Aide is the nation's largest free tax assistance and preparation service. Every year, from early February to mid-April, our volunteers take appointments at almost 3,500 locations around the country. You can find them in libraries, malls, banks and community centers in all 50 states.

Last year, 26,163 Tax-Aide volunteers helped secure more than $1.1 billion in total refunds for 1.5 million people. Use AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Service Locator Tool to find a site near you. 

Here's a list of documents you will need to bring to your appointment. Questions on tax laws? Visit Online Tax Assistance (OTA). If you would like to receive alerts from AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, sign up for SMS text alerts.
