AARP Tax Help 2022

AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide program is the largest free, volunteer-based tax assistance and preparation program in the U.S.

Though aimed at people 50 and older and those who have low to moderate incomes, this tax counseling is open to anyone free of charge. You don’t need to be an AARP member to take advantage of Tax-Aide’s knowledgeable volunteers.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, tax counseling will not be done in person.

Starting Jan. 18, 2022, you can call and make an appointment with an AARP volunteer for drop off and pick up of your tax materials.

Walk-ins are not allowed.

As of Jan. 18, call (309) 497-2131 or (309) 497-2137 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays to make your appointment. Messages will not be taken.
