The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program provides free federal tax return preparation and e-filing from Feb 1 (Mason District Government Center will open January 30) through April 15, 2019 by volunteers certified by the IRS.

The twelve centers (listed below) in Northern Virginia also prepare Virginia returns.  Sites also have a number of counselors qualified to prepare Maryland and DC returns.  Counselors handle almost all forms of income and work with taxpayers to help them get all the deductions and credits for which they qualify.  Although the program has no income limits, Tax-Aide clients are generally low and middle-income taxpayers.

You do not have to be an AARP member to take advantage of this service, which is available to taxpayers of all ages, with special attention to seniors.

Taxpayers need to bring with them: a photo ID; Social Security cards for themselves and dependents; a copy of last year’s tax returns (even if taxes were done at the site the prior year) and all tax documents they have received including but not limited to W-2s, Social Security benefit statements, 1099 interest, dividend, and pension/IRA statements, brokers’ statements, and W-2Gs for gambling winnings.   Self-employed individuals should bring information about the earnings and expenses of their businesses.  Also necessary, for those who itemize deductions, are documents and records concerning outlays such as mortgage interest, real estate tax, personal property tax, medical expenses and charitable contributions.  Those claiming education credits should bring form 1098-T from the relevant educational institution and records of outlays for tuition and other qualifying expenditures such as course books.  Direct deposit of refunds and direct debit of taxes owed require the bank routing number and the taxpayer’s account number.
