AARP Foundation this year is again providing free tax assistance and preparation, especially for taxpayers with low to moderate income through the Tax-Aide program.
In Michigan, about 1,000 Tax-Aide volunteers help more than 70,000 people each year at over 100 sites across the state.
The service starts Feb. 1. The service is free but appointments are required. To find a Tax-Aide site near you, go to this link: https://secure.aarp.org/applications/VMISLocator/searchTaxAideLocations.action
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, in its 50th year, is the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, giving special attention to the older population. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service.
“We could not provide this valuable service without our dedicated volunteers, who make an indelible mark on the communities they help,” said Chris Holman, State President of AARP Michigan.
Nationwide, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide’s 36,000 volunteers at more than 5,000 sites provide 2.6 million people with free tax help. Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure their knowledge of revisions to the U.S. tax code.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS.
