AARP Foundation Tax-Aide free tax preparation services

Services will start from February 1 and will end at April 18


Come and be assisted by IRS-certified volunteers for this season!

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation in Thurston County for taxpayers of all ages and income levels unless your return is outside the scope of the volunteers' training. All of the volunteers are IRS-certified.

Generally, returns will be prepared in one visit from start to finish unless you are missing important tax documents or identification.

There are three ways to make an appointment:

  1. Call the AARP appointment line at 360-474-3869 and leave a message.
  2. Make an appointment on the website.
  3. Walk in to one of the sites during open hours (see table below). The foundation will accept walk-ins if space is available, or they will schedule an appointment for a later date.

Each site is open two days a week (Yelm operates one day a week) by appointment between February 1 and April 18.
