AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has kicked off volunteer recruitment for its Tax-Aide program, the nation’s largest volunteer-run tax-preparation service. The foundation is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season and is accepting new volunteers through November.
Tax-Aide offers free in-person tax preparation and assistance to low- and moderate-income individuals nationwide. Volunteers make a difference in their communities by helping taxpayers, and their families, who might otherwise miss out on the tax credits and deductions they’ve earned.
There are a variety of volunteer roles, including tax preparers, client facilitators, those who can provide technical and management assistance and interpreters. Every level of experience is welcome. Volunteer tax preparers complete tax preparation training and IRS certification.
Last year in Montana, more than 200 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 14,000 people file their federal and state tax returns resulting in millions of dollars back in the pockets of Montanans. The program is offered at approximately 30 sites in Montana, including senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations.
Since 1968, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide team of over 26,000 volunteers have provided tax assistance to more than 75 million older taxpayers with low to moderate income. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest volunteer-based free tax assistance and preparation service. Taxpayers do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use Tax-Aide.
