Let AARP Foundation Tax-Aide help this tax season

Update March 7, 2022: Appointments are filling up quickly across North Dakota and may not be available in some locations. Call your location to learn more.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is providing in-person and virtual tax preparation in five North Dakota cities. Help is free of charge, with a focus on taxpayers who are over 50 and have low-to-moderate income.

Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified every year to make sure they understand the latest changes and additions to the tax code. In North Dakota, Tax-Aide volunteers can be found in Fargo, Bismarck, Wahpeton, Minot and Grand Forks. In-person appointments will be available at each site beginning Tuesday, Feb. 1. 

Appointments are required at all AARP sites, no walk-ins are allowed, and COVID protocols will be followed at each site.  All AARP volunteers and taxpayers are required to wear masks for in person appointments. Other protocols such as sneeze guards, social distancing and sanitizing also will be in place.  Do not come to the site if you feel ill or are experiencing any symptoms such as a fever, cough, etc.
