AARP Tax Help

The Warner Library Tax-Aide site in Tarrytown will not re-open for this tax season. The health and safety of our volunteers, staff and taxpayers is our top priority, and the decision not to re-open was made with their protection in mind.  Because of the suspension of in person services,  AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offering the following online options:

  • A self-prep option, providing taxpayers with free access to software so they can prepare taxes on their own, is available at signup.aarpfoundation.org/preparing-your-taxes-online/
  • If taxpayers would like help completing their own taxes, they can request the assistance of a volunteer to coach them through the process via  phone or computer screen-sharing. Visit aarpfoundation.org/taxaide for information and updates.
