AARP Tax-Aide 2021

Tax-Aide completed its 2020 tax return operations as of April 15 and would like to thank all the taxpayers it serviced this year. The pandemic resulted in many restrictions and thus limited the number of returns we could prepare. Despite that, our 53 IRS-Certified volunteers filed over 800 tax returns between the James City County Library and Williamsburg Library locations. We look forward to next year with the hope for better conditions and resumption of normal service levels. For you forward planners, look for Facebook updates later this year for information about 2021 tax return preparation. Thanks again.

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 50 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.
