Free Tax Preparation Help Available

AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide has been assisting filers for 50 years


AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation assistance beginning Feb.1. Now in its 50th year, Tax-Aide has helped 50 million low- and moderate-income taxpayers. You don’t have to be an AARP member, and there’s no age requirement to get tax help from IRS-certified volunteers.

Walk-in sites in Salem:  Each of the Salem Tax-Aide sites may change their dates and times
each year. 


Trained volunteers prepare federal and state income tax returns free for anyone subject to complexity restrictions, like no farms, rental income, businesses except the most simple.  No restrictions on age or income.  This service is provided by AARP and the IRS.

Documents people must bring include photo id for every taxpayer, social security or ITIN cards or papers for every person on the return, and all necessary papers showing income, deductions, adjustments, credits, tax payments.
