The AARP Tax-Aide program provides free federal and state income tax preparation and electronic filing to low- and moderate-income individuals. Returns are prepared by IRS-certified volunteers. The program is funded by the AARP Foundation, a tax-exempt charitable organization, and the IRS.

Counselors can help individuals navigate the changes on the 2017 federal and state income tax returns. Participants do not need to be an AARP member to use this service. Assistance is available by appointment only at the following sites from Feb. 1 to April 15.
