AARP Tax-Aide offers tax return preparation service for seniors

By on January 7, 2019

Many seniors find the tax preparation process daunting because of the expense and the complexity of the frequently changing IRS laws. It is especially difficult if there have been significant life changes like retirement or the death of a spouse.

AARP Tax-Aide has helped millions of low to moderate income senior taxpayers by offering free, in-person tax return preparation service. Seniors are guided on what paperwork to bring and what to expect at their appointment. Taking the stress and fear out of the tax return preparation process is the goal. IRS-certified volunteers will file senior returns electronically after thoroughly explaining how they arrived at the final results.
