Volunteer with AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

Tax-Aide
You can make a big difference in someone else's life

With the help of people like you, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax-filing to help those Idahoans who need it most. In fact, we have a team in Idaho with more than 300 volunteers that help around 30,000 individuals files their taxes for free each year. We can do more!

We’re looking for compassionate and friendly individuals to join our team of local volunteers for the upcoming tax season. You’ll receive training and continued support in a welcoming environment. And, as our current volunteers tell us, you’ll not only learn new skills, but also get a great feeling from helping someone else.

If you’re interested in making a difference in your community, we’ve got a role for you!

Who will you help as a volunteer?
We offer free tax preparation help to anyone - AARP member or not - with special attention to older, low-income taxpayers. We understand that many individuals may miss out on credits and deductions they’ve earned because they can’t afford to pay for professional tax preparation.

Who volunteers?
Idahoans like you. And there's a role for everyone.

Good with the fine print? Be a volunteer tax preparer.

Love working with people? Be a client facilitator.
You'll welcome taxpayers, help organize their paperwork and manage the overall flow of service.

Skilled in all things digital? Be a technology coordinator.
You'll manage computer equipment, ensure taxpayer data security and provide technical assistance to volunteers at multiple sites.

Want to help get the word out? Be a communications coordinator.
You'll promote AARP Foundation Tax-Aide and recruit volunteers in your community.

Have a knack for running things? Be a leadership or administrative volunteer.
Manage volunteers, make sure program operations run smoothly, track volunteer assignments and site activities, and maintain quality control.

Speak a second language? You're urgently needed!
We have a big demand for bilingual speakers in all roles. We also have a need for dedicated interpreters who can assist other volunteers.
