Read below for the full instructions about how to participate in the AARP Tax Assistance program this year.

Here is what you need to know and do to get your taxes completed by AARP:

  • 1. Schedule an appointment for scanning your tax documents

    ONLINE: Beginning January 18, you can schedule online here.

    PHONE: On or after February 1, you can schedule an appointment by calling AARP directly at: 612-440-6107

  • 2. Arrive at your appointment

    Bring all of your tax documents, including your prior year’s tax return, to your scheduled appointment. You must also bring your ID and Social Security Card. Please only come during your appointed time. We will not accept walk-ins or anyone arriving outside of their appointment time. If you need to cancel or change your appointment, please call the location you booked your appointment at so the receptionist can get you rescheduled.

  • 3. Review and Scan

    At your appointment, an AARP volunteer will review and scan all your documents into their system. If you are missing any items, the appointment cannot proceed. You will be required to make a new appointment – if any are available- for a later date.

  • 4. Ask about your property taxes

    If you own any type of property, be sure to ask your tax preparer about when you should do your property taxes!

  • 5. E-File

    After the taxpayer picks up and signs for their returns, the entire return (Federal and State) will be E-filed by AARP tax aide volunteers.
