Free federal and state income tax preparation offered to qualifying individuals

The AARP Tax-Aide program provides free federal and state income tax preparation and electronic filing to low-and moderate-income individuals. Returns are prepared by IRS-certified volunteers. The program is funded by the AARP Foundation, a tax-exempt charitable organization, and the IRS.

Counselors will help individuals navigate the 2022 federal and Maine income tax returns. You do not need to be an AARP member to use this service. Assistance is available by appointment only at the following sites from January 31st to April 19th.

If you were told that you didn’t have to file a tax return, and as a result you didn’t; you may be leaving money on the table. The majority of low income Mainers qualify for $130 (or more) of Property Tax Fairness Credit (PTFC) and/or Sales Tax Fairness Credit (STFC) from the State of Maine. However, in order to get the credits, they must file a Maine tax return. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will file your tax return for free.

Please remember that our appointment makers are all volunteers and respect them and their time when calling for an appointment.
