TAX ASSISTANCE

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program will again provide free tax preparation assistance beginning in February, 2021. AARP does not have specific income guidelines, but taxpayers with complex tax returns are advised to seek other tax services.

This year tax help will be provided by appointment only with a process that is tailored to meet the state and federal guidelines for operating in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning January 25, you can make your appointments Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. ­ – 1 p.m. by calling 612-284-1916. You can also ask taxpayer questions at the same times and phone number. Directions on the tax process will be provided during your appointment call.

To make an appointment for virtual tax prep with Prepare + Prosper, visit prepareandprosper.org or call 651-287-0187. Call 651-287-0187 to make appointments for a phone screening and a time/location to drop off your documents. Scheduling opens on Monday, February 8.
