Free AARP income tax help for seniors
AARP tax-aide volunteers are ready to prepare federal and state income tax returns. The free service is sponsored by the IRS and the AARP Foundation.
The service is for low-and middle- income taxpayers, with special attention to those 60 or older. One does not need to be an AARP member or retiree to use this service.
