Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to help TAX-AIDE, a program sponsored by the IRS and the AARP Foundation that provides free tax return preparation and electronic filing for low- and middle-income and senior community residents.
Helpers do not need to be an AARP member or retiree to volunteer, or to receive tax preparation services from TAX-AIDE.
New volunteers must sign up by December in order to become IRS-certified before the upcoming tax season. Volunteers do an extensive amount of study, using training materials and software provided by the IRS. All volunteers must pass the IRS Tests each year before assisting taxpayers during the tax season.
Complete an online application at www.aarp.org/taxaide. Once an application is processed, local coordinator Julia Roberts will be in touch.
For more information, contact Roberts at 303-887-3178 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
