AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, the nation's largest, free tax assistance and preparation program, is looking for people like you, to help thousands of older, middle- and low-income Massachusetts residents ease tax-time stress. With special attention to those age 60 and older, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides face-to-face assistance at nearly 250 sites across Massachusetts.
Volunteer opportunities are available as tax counselors, client facilitators, local coordinators and district coordinators. Some computer experience is helpful for all positions.
“If the idea of helping people who are squeezed financially appeals to you and you have some knowledge of tax preparation, consider joining our band of volunteers for the upcoming tax year,” said Tom Ligon, volunteer state coordinator for AARP Foundation Tax Aide in Massachusetts. “You don’t have to be an AARP member to help; you don’t have to be an AARP member to be helped.”
Volunteers are trained on tax law procedures, preparing tax forms and using tax preparation software. This past year, more than 600 AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers were trained in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.
Training sessions will begin in the fall. To learn more, visit www.aarp.org/taxaide.
