The Massachusetts Department of Revenue is proud of its partnership with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and the Federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to train AARP Tax-Aides.
AARP Tax-Aide is the nation's largest, free tax assistance and preparation program. If you're looking for a civic engagement volunteering opportunity, this is a great program to join. Helping those without resources to fill out their tax forms is a fulfilling and challenging community service.
The Tax-Aide volunteers assist individuals with the preparation of state and federal basic income tax returns. More than 24,000 Massachusetts residents received help through this program last year from some 600 trained volunteers. From Feb. 1 to April 15, the volunteers provide face-to-face assistance in locations such as senior centers and libraries.
Those interested in volunteering should call 1-866-448-3621 or see this AARP press release for more information.
If you have volunteered in the past for this program and would like to share your experience, feel free to leave a comment which might motivate others to join in.
