What is Tax-Aide?
Tax-Aide is a personal income tax preparation service that is free of charge to taxpayers. Funding for this service is provided primarily by the IRS, but other charitable organizations contribute to its operation as well. The Tax-Aide organization is managed by AARP Foundation (the charitable arm of AARP) which ensures that all sites are operated within the confines of IRS direction. All volunteers in the program are trained in accordance with IRS guidelines, tested and IRS certified.
What are the limitations for tax preparation?
Tax preparation is available to all taxpayers, regardless of age or income. However, in certain situations, our volunteers may be unable to provide assistance. The Volunteer Protection Act requires that our volunteers stay within the scope of tax law and policies they are trained and certified in.
