Welcome to AARP Tax Aide in The Villages

AARP Tax-Aide provides free tax counseling 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. Tax-Aide volunteers, trained in cooperation with the IRS, offer this service year round.

Every year around the country, our National Organization helps millions of taxpayers get the credits and deductions they deserve.

Started in 1968 by four volunteers, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is now the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax preparation program.

In 2017, over 35,000 volunteers worked at nearly 5,000 Tax-Aide community-based sites in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We helped 2.5 million people navigate complicated tax codes, receive proper credits and deductions, and file their federal, state and local tax returns.
