Do you need help preparing your income tax returns?

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers a free tax preparation service in 135 communities across Wisconsin, starting Feb. 1 through April 15. Last year alone, more than 700Tax-Aide volunteers helped nearly 60,000 Wisconsinites file their tax returns at convenient locations such as local senior centers and libraries.

Tax-Aide – now in its 45th year – is AARP’s largest nationwide volunteer run program, and we are proud to once again assist Wisconsinites who need help preparing their returns, says Paul Swanson, Wisconsin’s Tax-Aide State Coordinator. Paul reminds everyone that it is extremely important for people to complete their tax returns accurately and on time, whether you use the free Tax-Aide service or not.

Tax-Aide is a free, confidential service available to low and middle income taxpayers of all ages, with special attention to those age 60 and older. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service. The program is operated by local volunteers who are IRS certified and trained to assist in filing basic tax forms.
