Last year, some 24,000 older, low- and middle-income Massachusetts taxpayers received assistance and tax preparation from the nation's largest, free tax assistance program, AARP Tax-Aide.

The Massachusetts Department of Revenue is proud to partner with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the training of volunteers, 600 of whom provided help to individuals returning their state and federal income taxes.

AARP has provided an enrollment form for those who are interested, as well as a press release with more information. The commitment to work with clients in locales such as public libraries and senior centers extends from Feb. 1 to April 15.

This is a meaningful and challenging opportunity for community service. We'd like to hear from anyone who has volunteered in the past as an AARP Tax-Aide.
