If you have friends or family that are over 50 and low-to-moderate income, pass on a tip to them: AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has nationwide, trained and IRS-certified volunteers who will prepare their 2022 tax return FREE of charge!
I have been one of those volunteers for 6 years. Most of the taxpayers we serve are on a very tight budget, so they are grateful to not have to pay to file their taxes. And since it takes me less than an hour of volunteer work to save someone hundreds of dollars, it’s a very rewarding way to volunteer.
Each tax return is reviewed by 2 different trained preparers before it’s e-filed, so it’s high-quality tax preparation. The trick is that many sites are by appointment-only, so I recommend people make an appointment soon before all the slots are filled.
