The Financial Stability Partnership has joined with the long-standing free tax preparation services provided by AARP Tax-Aide Program, The Salvation Army, and the Senior Center, as well as the Internal Revenue Service and the Minnesota Department of Revenue to promote free tax preparation in Olmsted County. There are three AARP Tax-Aide sites in Olmsted County that provide free tax preparation.
IRS-Certified VITA/TCE Volunteer Tax Preparers with the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program will prepare your taxes for FREE if you are an individual or family with low-to moderate income.
Beginning in January, call one of the free tax sites below for more information or to make a FREE tax appointment.

If you have received free tax assistance in the past at any of the above sites, please contact the same site again this year. Arrangements can be made for counselors to provide tax help for those who are homebound by calling any of the sites above.
