Volunteers are needed NOW for the next tax season!
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide and United Way of Anchorage need volunteers to prepare taxes for the Free Tax Prep Program!
Free tax prep is an important boost for individuals and families working to improve their financial stability, but the program would not be possible without the time and talent of volunteers. Your help goes a long way—sometimes a higher refund means keeping the heat on or helping with rent for our most vulnerable residents.
No prior tax experience is necessary to become a volunteer. All the training and materials you need to be successful are provided, and Saturday training options are available!
Please visit our Volunteer page for more information, or visit www.aarp.org/taxaide, and click on “Volunteer for AARP Foundation Tax-Aide” to complete an application. Want to help but aren’t sure tax prep is for you? Contact Maureen Haggblom at firstname.lastname@example.org for other volunteer needs, such as greeters, computer coaches and interpreters.

You, too, can save preparation and filing fees, improve the accuracy of your return, and ensure you receive the credits and benefits you qualify for—all for FREE.

If you made less than $60,000 in 2015 and have access to a computer, you will be able to file your own 2015 taxes online for free at MyFreeTaxes.com.
Did you purchase health insurance or receive an exemption on the HealthCare.gov Marketplace? You must bring Form 1095-A or your exemption certificate number to your tax site. Also, know who in your household had health coverage and for which months in 2015.
