Taxpayers must have the ability to scan and print documents, and to participate in virtual meetings including audio and video. Also, taxpayers will be contacted by email and phone with instructions on how to proceed.
Place your name on the Monday Call List for the week you desire to schedule your appointment. You will be contacted on that Monday with an appointment date and instructions on to how to proceed. You can find the Monday Call list on our event calendar. Look for the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program events on Mondays from February 15 - April 12.
There are only 10 appointments scheduled for each week, so book a Monday early to avoid disappointment. If the Monday you desire has already been filled, you can either put your name on the waiting list or choose a different week.
