AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

  • 2 people are interested

Daytona Tax-Aide is a local Florida district of the national non-profit free tax service program sponsored by the AARP Foundation in cooperation with the IRS. Our volunteers help low and middle income taxpayers with special attention to those age 50 and older by providing tax counseling and preparation. We have 6 local sites in Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Holly Hill, South Daytona and Port Orange. Services may be in person, virtual or a hybrid of both. Training is in January with tax services from Feb. 1 to April 15 each year. We provide free tax training, materials and equipment for volunteers willing to learn to prepare tax returns and achieve IRS certification. For those with expertise in other areas, we have positions in leadership, administrative, and technical services.

COVID

Continuing our policy of protecting our taxpayer clients and our volunteers from COVID is our top priority when planning for the upcoming tax season. The AARP Foundation requires all of its sites across the country to follow CDC guidelines relevant to their specific locations.

Before last season, our services had been provided in person. Last year, to meet CDC COVID guidelines for all COVID levels across the nation, AARP Foundation developed several new methods we could use to continue our services . These processes go from in person, to hybrids of in-person and virtual to totally virtual. For the upcoming season, we will continue to implement the appropriate process based on the COVID levels at our sites.
