AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will offer free tax preparation in Thurston County this year with appointments beginning in February and ending in mid-April. We are preparing tax returns at libraries and senior centers this year, and welcome clients of all ages and income levels unless your return is outside the scope of our training. All our volunteers are IRS certified.

In most cases, your return will be prepared in one visit from start to finish unless you are missing important tax documents or identification.

We start taking appointments in mid-January for appointments starting February 1, 2023. There are three ways to make an appointment:

1.    Call our appointment line at 360-474-3869 and leave a message.

2.    Make an appointment on our website at

3.    Walk in to one of our sites during open hours. We will accept Walk-ins if space is available, or we will schedule an appointment for a later date.

If you leave a message on our appointment line, one of our volunteers will get back to you within 3 business days. Your caller ID will show (617) 675-4444 when we call back. Please add this number to your phone contacts under Tax-Aide.

*Yelm Timberland Library patrons can make an appointment by calling the library reference desk at 360-539-3330 or can make an appointment while visiting the library.
