AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest volunteer-run, IRS-certified tax-preparation and assistance service. And we want you to join us.


We started in 1968 with just four volunteers at one site preparing 100 tax returns. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide now involves more than 35,000 volunteers and serves 2.6 million taxpayers annually at more than 5,000 sites nationwide. In fact, we’re one of the most effective volunteer programs in America.


But even though we’ve grown a lot, we’re still all about the grassroots. You’ll be helping people in your own community with a much-needed service that’s free, individualized and has no strings attached.


Across Ohio, more than 1,500 volunteers prepared 80,000 returns last year at 285 locations. Chances are there’s a location near you with a need for help.


Who can help? Anyone with basic computer skills and an interest in helping people file their taxes. You do not have to be an AARP member. You do not have to know the ins and outs of taxes. Training is provided. In short, anyone who has ever filed his or her own taxes using TaxCut, TurboTax or any other tax program is an excellent candidate.
