AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Locator

 

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides free tax preparation in different ways – in-person, low-contact, or contact-free – depending on what service is available in your area. Some sites can provide service in one or two visits, or you may not need to visit a site at all, with all interactions taking place online. Brief descriptions of each service type offered at Tax-Aide sites are available by selecting the "Service Types" tab below.
 

You can also choose to prepare your tax return yourself, with coaching from one of our IRS-certified tax counselors. To do so, make a request using this form.
