AARP- Tax Aide
AARP Tax-Aide Services at Mat-Su Senior Center
Beginning February 10, and each following Thursday thru April 14, 2022, AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be providing tax services for the 2021 tax year by appointment only. Appointments can be made online starting the last week in January by accessing the following website:
Follow the steps to find a location near you and book your own appointment or have a friend or family member book on your behalf.
Alternatively, if you are unable to make an online appointment, the “211” Services for Alaska can assist you with making an online appointment. If you cannot access 211 from your phone, call 1-800-478-2221 for assistance. This service is anticipated to go “live” the last week of January.
During times of closure of the Mat-Su Senior Center, access for tax preparation appointments will be limited to only those who have appointments. All customers will be required to wear a mask during their appointment and follow all CDC recommended Covid-19 guidelines. All AARP volunteers are required to be vaccinated and wear masks.
This year’s process will be slightly amended and will require you to complete the normal intake paperwork with a morning appointment and return later the same afternoon to pick up your completed return. Be sure to bring all the current tax year documentation, photo ID and Social Security Card, along with last year’s tax return to your appointment. If filing a joint return, both taxpayers need to be present. Please make other arrangements for your children to be cared for during your tax appointment. If you have a prior year return (no more than 3 years prior), make a separate appointment for each year you need to have completed.
