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

2022 Tax-Aide AppointmentS

Registration for 2022 tax appointments is closed, as all tax appointments are full.

    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.
