AARP Tax Assistance

Since 1973, Community Thread has partnered with the AARP Tax-Aide Foundation to offer free income tax filing to low- to moderate-income taxpayers.

This service is provided in partnership with trained and certified AARP tax-aide volunteers who file federal and state income tax returns.Returns can be prepared only for Minnesota residents who are not required to file a state tax return in any state other than Minnesota. A copy of the taxpayers return and all original documents will be returned. For more information, visit the Minnesota Department of Revenue web page at

2023 Tax-Aide AppointmentS

Registration for 2023 tax appointments will begin January 16, 2023. Please call on or after January 16 to schedule an appointment at 651-789-4177. Appointments will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays between February 6 – April 12, 2023.


State Tax Returns

State filing and payment deadlines vary and are not always the same as the federal filing deadline. Some states automatically accept a federal Form 4868 extension, other states have extended their tax filing dates – taxpayers should check their state tax agency for more information.

No tax records are stored at Community Thread at any time during or after the tax filing period has ended.
