Save money. Maximize your refund.


As coronavirus (COVID-19) developments change hour by hour, AARP Foundation and United Way of Anchorage are doing our part to flatten the curve of transmission. A top priority for us is ensuring we are protecting those most at risk, including our volunteers and taxpayers. Therefore, we are suspending in-person Free Tax Preparation in Anchorage beginning March 16 until further notice.

Online options for Free Tax Prep are available at IRS.gov or MyFreeTaxes.com.

Free In-Person Tax Sites

During the last tax season, dozens of well-trained tax preparers filed over 3,700 federal tax returns in Anchorage at no charge to the taxpayer. This saved an estimated $751,600 in tax prep fees and delivered nearly $4 million in refunds back to Anchorage households and our local economy.

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.

Visit one of our certified tax preparers at scheduled FREE tax prep sites throughout the Anchorage area.
