AARP Tax-Aide has been assisting Nebraska residents with free tax preparation for years? Our program offers free tax preparation at local sites throughout the state from February through April each year.
Volunteers assist with income tax preparation and other administrative duties. The ideal volunteer for tax preparation is computer literate, well organized and enjoys interacting with others. All volunteers receive training from AARP Tax-Aide, in conjunction with the IRS. Training takes place in December and January and our tax season runs from February 1st though April 15th.
“This is one of the most interesting volunteer opportunities I’ve ever had. I know that I am helping others and really making a difference” commented a volunteer after last year’s tax season. This highly rewarding volunteer activity also offers you an opportunity to learn a new skill. You will be trained and certified by the IRS to electronically prepare and file Federal Income Tax returns.
There is something for everyone. If you are not comfortable with computers or do not want to prepare tax returns, there are other satisfying opportunities available including Client Facilitators, Technology, Communications, Training, and Site Coordinators.
Visit the Volunteer with AARP Tax-Aide page to sign up. A representative will then contact you with more information on how to get started.
AARP Tax-Aide started in 1968 with just four volunteers at one site preparing 100 tax returns. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide now involves more than 35,000 volunteers and serves 2.6 million taxpayers annually at more than 5,000 sites nationwide. It is a jointly sponsored IRS and AARP Program and is the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation service available to low and middle income taxpayers with special attention to those 60 and older.
