A note from our friends at the AARP:


AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation's largest volunteer-run tax preparation service
Garland County-AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is looking to expand its team of volunteers for the upcoming tax season. Tax-Aide offers free tax filing help to anyone, especially those 50 and older, who cannot afford a tax preparation service. Tax-Aide volunteers make a difference in their communities by assisting many older and low-to-moderate-income taxpayers who might otherwise miss out on the credits and deductions they may be eligible for.
Tax-Aide volunteers receive training and support in a welcoming environment. There is need for volunteer tax preparers, client facilitators, those who can provide technical and management assistance and interpreters. Every level of experience is welcome. Volunteer tax preparers complete tax preparation training and IRS certification.
This year, Garland County Library and Hot Springs Village Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 2000 people file their federal and state tax returns
Volunteers receive training materials in November, access to online IRS training tools and software programs to assist in tax preparation training.  An AARP volunteer conducts classroom training the first week in January.      
To learn about our volunteer opportunities, visit  or call 1-888-OUR-AARP (1-888-687-2277). AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offered in coordination with the IRS.  Locally may call Bill Davidson @ 501-463-3794 or email him at Irene Sandhaus, 830-265-7919,
