AARP will be offering virtual and drop-off services.  The Campaign for Working Families (VITA) will be offering assistance through their website.

The site will allow you to upload your tax information, speak to IRS-certified tax preparers, and get help filing your taxes online free.  You'll be asked to verify your identity and answer questions about your finances and submit your necessary documents.Tax preparers will go over all your information in a phone call and help you e-file your taxes.

AARP Tax-AideAARP Foundation Tax-Aide provides in-person and remote tax assistance free of charge to anyone, with a special focus on taxpayers who are 50 or older or who have low to moderate income. AARP Tax Aide is not offering traditional in-person appointments. In our area they are offering two different kinds of services.  You can request help from a volunteer counselor to coach you through the process using your own computer while screen-sharing. (Tax-Aide also provides taxpayers with access to free software to prepare taxes totally on your own.)  There are also several locations where you can drop off your documents to have them prepared by a tax-aide volunteer.  Drop-off locations.
