Tax Aide Program

The Tax Aide program is an AARP Foundation and IRS free tax preparation assistance program.  We complete federal tax forms for low to moderate income population and with special attention to senior citizens and people with disabilities.

The program has a need for volunteers in three different positions 1) tax counselor - prepare tax forms with the taxpayer present.  2) appointment takers - be available to answer the telephone and use a computer program to schedule taxpayers for an appointment.  3) facilitator - act as host/hostess to greet the taxpayer and to insure they have the appropriate information with them.  All of these activities take place at Active Generations.

No accounting background or special tax knowledge is necessary.  Training is provided for each of the positions.  Basic computer skills are necessary for the tax counselor and the appointment taker, but training is provided for the software and for tax preparation/laws. Training begins in early winter and tax preparation season is February 1 to April 15.

Our volunteers find this program to be very rewarding and a positive experience.  Our clients/taxpayers are extremely grateful for the program.
