AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Seeks Volunteers to Assist Taxpayers

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, the nation’s largest free volunteer-run tax assistance and
preparation service is seeking volunteers to assist taxpayers in southwestern Cuyahoga
County. We are returning to our established sites in Brook Park, Middleburg Heights,
Cleveland Puritas-Longmead neighborhood, Brooklyn, Parma (2), Strongsville, North
Royalton and Broadview Heights. Volunteers do not have to be retired or a member of

All of our sites are electronic filing sites. Volunteers are expected to work at a site for at
least 5 hours per week on weekdays during the tax season, which runs from the first week
in February through the 15th of April. Each volunteer must have an email address and
computer experience is preferred for tax return preparers. Volunteers do not need
previous income tax experience. We provide a free two-week course for tax return
preparers during January. We are also looking for greeters and provide them with a free
one-day course.

Tax-Aide is a very rewarding IRS-supported program offered by the AARP Foundation
providing free assistance to taxpayers with special attention given to senior citizens with
low to moderate incomes. It is a great way for volunteers to become involved in their
communities and learn about the preparation of the 1040 tax form. Our recruitment of
volunteers is on a non-discriminatory basis without consideration of race, religion,
gender, disability, or sexual orientation.
