AARP Tax-Aide Foundation


The AARP Tax-Aide Foundation offers free tax help, preparation, and e-filing in Inyo and Mono counties. This free tax help and preparation service, run by volunteers, serves low and moderate income taxpayers. Our counselors are trained and certified annually through an IRS/AARP training program and we can assist and answer most all of the questions you may have regarding your tax liability issues.

What’s new this year:  The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is being administered by the IRS and coverage of your health insurance is reported through your tax return.

Spanish speaking assistance is available, but must be requested at time of appointment.
