AARP Tax-Aide is complete for the 2023 tax season on April 18, 2023. Check back this winter for information on the next tax season.

About the AARP Program

Tax-Aide is sponsored by the AARP Foundation and is the largest free, volunteer-based tax assistance and preparation program in the U.S. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides in-person and remote tax preparation help to anyone, free of charge, with a special focus on taxpayers who are over 60 and those who have low to moderate income.

More than 36,000 volunteers provide taxpayers in nearly 5,000 communities with free tax preparation and filing services. Tax-Aide volunteers are trained and IRS-certified every year to make sure they know about and understand the latest changes and additions to the tax code.

Williamsburg AARP Tax-Aide Returns for 2023 Tax Season

Tax season is nearly here, and Williamsburg AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will once again be serving the community at two locations in the Greater Williamsburg area. This year we will return to our pre-Covid process, which includes same day tax preparation for both walk-ins as well as appointments.

We will begin preparing returns for walk-ins on Tuesday, January 31, 2023 and start making appointments that day as well (first appointments are February 13th). The last day for preparing returns is April 18th 2023. While we will continue to operate out of the downtown Williamsburg Library, we will no longer be using the library on Croaker Road. Instead, we will prepare returns out of James City Fire Station #1 at 3135 Forge Road in Toano (next to Richmond Road).

You will not be required to prepare our pre-printed packets in advance, but you will fill out that information when you come in to have your tax return prepared. At that time, please bring in copies of the following:

  • Photo ID and Social Security Card for all persons on the tax return
  • Tax forms like W-2s, 1099s, 1098s, etc
  • Bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit
  • Last year’s tax return if possible
  • Others as needed for your return

If you have this information on your phone, please print it before coming in.

Please refer to this web page and the Tax-Aide Facebook Page for further updates.
