AARP Tax Help 2024

NOTE: AARP volunteers are no longer able to take appointments for free tax help this year.

If you already have a scheduled appointment but have questions, you can call Main Library at (309) 497-2131 on Tuesdays between 10a-4pm to reach an AARP volunteer. This phone number does not have voicemail.

AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide program is the largest free, volunteer-based tax assistance and preparation program in the U.S.

Though aimed at people 50 and older and those who have low to moderate incomes, this tax counseling is open to anyone free of charge. You don’t need to be an AARP member to take advantage of Tax-Aide’s knowledgeable volunteers.

Can’t get an appointment? You may still be able to get help.
The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and the Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs offer free tax help for individuals making $58,000 a year or less, people 60 years of age or older, individuals with disabilities, and taxpayers with limited English-speaking skills.
You can also search the Illinois Department of Revenue website — — or call IDOR’s Taxpayer Assistance Division at 800-732-8866.
Finally, in person help is available at any of IDOR’s offices located in Chicago, Des Plaines, Fairview Heights, Marion, Rockford, and Springfield to receive assistance.
