Mission Statement

AARP Foundation serves vulnerable people 50 and older by creating and advancing effective solutions that help them secure the essentials. The AARP Foundation envisions a country free of poverty where no older person feels vulnerable. We're tackling senior poverty by sparking bold, innovative solutions that help vulnerable older adults build economic opportunity and social connectedness - fostering resilience, strengthening communities and restoring hope. The Tax-Aide program is one of these solutions. Tax-Aide offers free personal tax preparation help to people of any age with low to moderate income but with a special focus on those 50 and older. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is a nation-wide service based in Washington DC but with locations throughout the country. We have two locations locally, one in Grass Valley and one in Lake Wildwood, as well as one location in Sierra County at Loyalton. These locations use an all-volunteer staff of client facilitators, tax counselors (preparers), technical coordinators, and administrative coordinators. Our service is completely free and open to people of any age. Volunteers receive hands-on training in tax preparation and are IRS certified. Whether you join us as a volunteer or take advantage of our tax preparation services, you will encounter a friendly, helpful, knowledgable, enthusiastic and highly functioning team of people.
