AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers can help with most, but not all, tax returns. If you have an extremely complicated return, such as one that involves a small business with employees, rental income, or alternative minimum tax (AMT), Tax-Aide may not be able to help. See what type of taxes we can prepare.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation's largest volunteer-based free tax preparation service. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service, and all Tax-Aide volunteers are IRS-certified.

Tax-Aide provides tax preparation assistance services nationwide. In 2022, over 25,000 volunteers helped 1.2 million taxpayers receive more than $1 billion in tax refunds. And in Idaho, 274 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers helped 15,167 taxpayers to receive more than $13 million in tax refunds.

Tax-Aide has several options for providing taxpayer assistance. These options vary by location and are subject to change.
