AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free tax preparation assistance to anyone. If you are 50+ years old and cannot afford a tax preparation service, we were made especially for you. Our team of IRS-certified volunteers is happy to assist you.

AARP Tax-Aide KS24 (part of AARP Foundation Tax-Aide) serves the northeast Kansas counties of Douglas, Franklin & Jefferson, with free income tax sites in Baldwin City, Lawrence, Oskaloosa and Ottawa.

There is no fee and AARP membership is not required.

Taxes During COVID-19

It is our goal to protect all taxpayers and all of our volunteers while providing our income tax service. Because of this, our tax preparation process is constantly changing and will be communicated to you when you make your tax appointment. This year’s process will require at least two visits to the tax site and will involve several phone calls with the volunteer tax counselor.
