Free Tax preparation for Seniors
The AARP offers free tax preparation help to anyone, and if you are 50 and older, and can't afford a tax preparation service, we were made especially for you! We understand that retirement or other life changes may mean your taxes are a little more complicated now. With the help of our team of IRS-certified volunteers, we make it easy for you. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will be available at the Carson Community Center on Monday & Wednesday between February-April 2024. There's no fee and no sales pitch for other services, and AARP membership is not required. This service is provided by appointment only, so please call (310) 835-0212 ext. 1479 to make your appointment today.
