Volunteer with AARP Tax Aide!

We have an URGENT need for volunteers to help with income tax preparations!

For many, many years a volunteer with AARP Tax-Aide has worked from the Mahomet Public Library, assisting seniors and others who need help filing simple tax returns.

Changes in the AARP program requirements mean that this volunteer can no longer work alone; there must be two preparers working together. The Mahomet community will lose this service if we cannot find more volunteers.

Requirements and Commitments

You will be working alongside the experienced volunteer who has performed this work for many years. No formal financial background is needed, but volunteers must:

  • Be comfortable with numbers and have basic computer skills.

  • Attend AARP training in January

  • Be available to schedule appointments with patrons from February through April

This is not a library program, but the library has been proud to serve as a host site and watch as hundreds of patrons receive tax help each year. We would really hate to see this service leave our community. Please help!
