Volunteer to Provide Free Tax Help


Tax season is approaching, and AARP Michigan is seeking volunteers to join AARP Foundation Tax-Aide. It is the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax-preparation service.

Tax-Aide is open to all but focuses on people 50 and over who are moderate- to low-income.

AARP needs volunteers to prepare tax returns, interact with clients, offer technical and management help, and translate for clients. All preparers receive training and IRS certification. The program is offered at 100-plus sites in Michigan, including senior centers and libraries.

Volunteering requires 10 to 20 hours of training and a minimum of four hours per week from Feb. 1 to April 15 of helping Tax-Aide clients. Training is underway, so those interested in volunteering should act soon. Go to or call 888-687-2277.
