About

An AARP Tax-Aide Counselor provides free income tax form preparation and answers tax questions for low- and moderate-income taxpayers two or more days a week during the February to April tax filing season.

You will be required to attend January training sessions on the tax code and tax software and to complete and pass the IRS take-home exam. Volunteers need to apply by early October in order to be scheduled for training. Familiarity with tax preparation software is a must for counseling, although administrative positions are available without that requirement.

This is a great opportunity to help low-to-middle-income and older taxpayers in your community.
