Volunteers will be IRS-trained to prepare taxes for thousands during the 2016 tax season. Volunteers are needed in Missouri.



AARP Foundation is looking to build its team of tax loving volunteers. Tax-Aide is a free tax assistance and preparation program for taxpayers with low to moderate income through the AARP Foundation.

Last year, 687 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 63,000 people file their federal, state and local tax returns. The program is offered at approximately 127 sites in Missouri including senior centers, libraries and other convenient locations.

“As people age they don’t challenge their minds nearly as much as they did when they were younger,” said Bob Juergens, volunteer Tax-Aide State Coordinator. “AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are not only helping people within their community but they are giving their mind a workout as well.”

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, in its 48th year, is the nation’s largest free tax assistance and preparation service, and our army of volunteer advisors understand the needs of lower-income older taxpayers. This welcoming program understands that retirement or other life changes may mean taxes are can be a little more complicated, but our personal attention and assistance ensures that taxpayers of all ages and backgrounds receive applicable tax credits and deductions. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS.
