AARP Foundation Tax Aide Volunteers are trained and IRS certified each year to ensure their knowledge of revisions to the US tax code. By using AARP Foundation Tax Aide, these low to moderate income taxpayers also avoid preparation fees and pitches for high-interest tax credit or refund loans. AARP Foundation Tax Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS.
This tax preparation program is available free to taxpayers with low to moderate income, with special attention to those 60 and older. All you need to do is call and set up an appointment at tax time. AARP membership is not required.
We would like to spread the word about our program for two reasons:
- Communicating our services to those who need our help
- Recruiting volunteers
We have several different volunteer positions available within our program:
-Counselor - the person that sits down and actually does the tax preparation
-Client Facilitator (Greeter) - the person that greets the clients and gives them a little help filling out their information sheet when they arrive at the site
-Appointment Taker - this person signs up for a 4 or 8 hour block and schedules appointment at home using their own computer and telephone
Hours are flexible and training and assistance is provided for every position.
