Welcome to Iowa Tax-Aide!

AARP Tax-Aide provides free tax assistance and preparation for taxpayers with low- and middle- income, with special attention to those age 60 and older. You do not need to be a member of AARP or a retiree to use this service. Iowa Tax-Aide volunteers, trained in cooperation with the IRS, offer this service each tax season.

Volunteers are always needed! The strength of this program depends on volunteers. Individuals with basic computer skills and an interest in serving their local communities in Iowa can apply by clicking HERE.

The Tax-Aide program provides training, equipment and IRS certification to enable our volunteers to confidently offer tax assistance.
