AARP Tax Assistance
Community Thread offers free tax filing assistance to low and middle-income taxpayers beginning in early February by appointment only. Trained AARP Tax-Aide volunteers, certified by the Internal Revenue Service and MN Department of Revenue, explain tax requirements, answer questions, and electronically file income tax returns. Returns can only be prepared for Minnesota residents with income from Minnesota. Not all forms and schedules can be prepared (for example, residential rental income). Appointments can be made starting in January 2018.
