Tax Help



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 level unless your return is outside the scope of our training. All our volunteers are IRS certified.

To protect the health and safety of our volunteers and taxpayers, we accept taxpayers by appointment only and allow limited face-to-face contact of 15 minutes per visit. Taxpayers visiting our sites will either drop off their tax documents or have them scanned. Taxpayers will leave the site while we prepare their return and come back later to review and pick up their completed tax return.

For your initial intake appointment:

Call our appointment line at 360-592-3489 starting January 17, 2022.


Submit a Request for Assistance on our website at

One of our volunteers will get back to you within 3 to 5 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.
