Dread Doing Tax Returns? Here's Help


The refund that flows from a properly prepared tax return can be a windfall for someone living on a fixed income and facing rising health care costs. AARP Illinois encourages members to take advantage of AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, which last year helped more than 82,000 Illinoisans file more than 55,000 tax returns at 201 sites across the state.

The program—which has assisted more than 50 million U.S. taxpayers since 1968—is open to everyone, although priority is given to taxpayers age 50-plus with low to moderate income.

To find a site near you—in any state—go to or call 888-227-7669 (888-AARP-NOW) toll-free. For a list of documents to bring to a Tax-Aide session, go to
