It is tax season, and people are beginning to file their returns. As you gather your paperwork, do you feel like you could use some help? Or maybe you are in a position to assist others with their returns. Either way, there is good news. The AARP Foundation helps provide the means to receive and recruit Tax-Aide services for the community.
Beginning this week and continuing through April 15, AARP Foundation is providing free in-person tax assistance and preparation through its Tax-Aide program.
Tax-Aide is the nation's largest free tax preparation and assistance program. In Michigan last year, Tax-Aide helped more than 65,000 taxpayers and returns for those filers was more than $28 million. Help is provided at 150 sites across the state.
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.
For over 50 years, AARP volunteers have provided free assistance to 68 million low- and moderate-income people in preparing their taxes. With tax season approaching, AARP South Carolina is recruiting volunteers for AARP Foundation Tax-Aide to work with residents on their returns.
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 the end of October.
