AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Sites Service Suspended Until Further Notice

AARP Tax-Aide

As coronavirus (COVID-19) developments change hour by hour, AARP Foundation is doing its part to flatten the curve of transmission. A top priority for us is ensuring we are protecting those most at risk, including our volunteers and taxpayers. Therefore, we are suspending AARP Foundation Tax-Aide services beginning March 16 until further notice.

We will continue to assess whether we can open again in some or all sites for the remainder of the tax season and if the tax season is extended. Please check back here for the most up-to-date information, including site re-openings.

Need help filing your 2019 income taxes? AARP Foundation Tax-Aide sites across North Dakota open beginning Feb. 1. This free service is available to low- and moderate-income taxpayers of all ages with special attention to those 60 and older.

You do not have to be an AARP member to take advantage of the service.

IRS-certified volunteers are trained to assist in filing accurate returns and help taxpayers receive all of the benefits, credits, and deductions to which they are entitled. All AARP Tax-Aide sites e-file returns, also at no cost, which helps taxpayers get refunds quickly. Every taxpayer’s return is quality reviewed and all information is kept confidential.

Last year in North Dakota 9,617 people were helped with their federal and state tax returns. This year more than 100 volunteer preparers and client facilitators will staff 11 sites across the state.
