Volunteer with AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

Would you like to make a difference in the lives of people right in your own community? As an AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteer, you can help people who can’t afford to pay for professional tax preparation — and often miss out on much-needed tax breaks, deductions, and refunds. You can help put money back in their pockets. 

You don’t have to be a tax pro to volunteer with us — there are many ways to get involved and connect with people in your community. Whatever your skill set, there’s a role for you! Learn more about how to volunteer with AARP Foundation Tax-Aide. 

Join our team of volunteers in time for next season to help people in your own community.
