2020 Tax Returns

AARP Tax Assistance

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program will not be offered this tax season at any site in Mercer County. However, AARP is offering an alternative this year called the AARP Alternative Tax Preparation program (ATP).

This program provides direct taxpayer access to free online tax software for this year's taxes as well as video and/or phone assistance with a certified AARP tax assister. Rather than doing the tax return for the taxpayer, the certified AARP tax assister helps the taxpayer prepare his/her own online return.

Starting on January 22, 2021 you can get more information about the Alternative Tax Preparation program at aarpfoundation.org/taxaide.

We all certainly hope that next year, when we are all safe from the COVID-19 pandemic, we and the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program will be able to prepare tax returns at this Site as we have in the past.
