Free Tax PrepBeginning February 4, an AARP Tax-Aide Coordinator and several IRS-trained tax counselors will help prepare taxes for individuals who need assistance with filing their income taxes. AARP’s Tax-Aide is a free annual program, brought to you by your local AARP chapter and the Council for Older Adults. The program makes tax assistance available to older adults in Delaware County. Local AARP volunteers have successfully completed a rigorous training program, which is offered in cooperation with the Internal Revenue Service.

This service is provided by appointment only and the Council for Older Adults will begin scheduling appointments on January 26. Appointments are available on Wednesdays and Thursdays, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., from February 4 through April 15. Appointments are first-come, first-served. To make an appointment, please call the Council’s tax hotline at 740-203-2423 and leave your name and phone number, including area code, and your call will be returned within 48 hours.
Please do not schedule your appointment until you have received all of your paperwork. On the day of your appointment you MUST bring:

  • Social Security card/1099 SA & photo ID
  • 2014  tax return
  • W-2s
  • 1099s
  • Billing statements for new windows, doors, insulation, etc. purchased in 2014
  • Any other tax-related materials such as itemized deductions, etc.

In the event of inclement weather, please contact your location to verify that appointment.
