Tax season is upon us and so is the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program!
is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Approaching its 50 th year, Tax-Aide offers free tax filing help to anyone – especially those 50 and older – who can’t afford a tax preparation service. Tax-Aide volunteers make a difference in their communities by assisting many older, lower-income taxpayers who might otherwise miss out on the credits and deductions they’ve earned.
AARP is now accepting nominations for its 2017 New Hampshire Andrus Award for Community Service -- AARP’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award.  The purpose of the award is to recognize outstanding individuals who are making a powerful difference in their communities in ways that advance AARP’s mission, vision, and commitment to volunteer service and that inspire others to volunteer.
