UPDATE: Folks have been asking about the AARP Tax-Aide program for this year. We've just received an official update.

TAX-AIDE to offer Limited Contact Tax Preparation

For the safety of our clients and volunteers, the Hartwell AARP Tax preparation site is offering limited and no contact services
starting Monday February 15, 2021 at 9 am.
These services are for returning clients and by appointment ONLY, no walk-ins will be accepted. Face masks will be mandatory for all in-person contacts. Appointments may be made by calling
706-371-6058. Calls will be returned in the order received.

Limited Contact: Your return is completed while you wait on-site in your car. You will need to bring a pen, your identification and tax documents (preferably copies), and to fill out intake forms. You will give documents to intake counselor (or place in drop-box) and return to your car. You must have a cell phone to answer counselor’s questions during preparation and quality review. You will re-enter the tax site (or access drop-box) when notified for a final review and signature. If you are married and file your return jointly, both spouses must attend this appointment to review and sign your return. Tax preparation time will be 1 to 1 1/ 2 hours.

No Contact Model: There is NO face-to-face contact between taxpayer and Tax-Aide volunteers. All tax preparations are handled virtually using technology. To utilize the service: you must have an email address; be able to scan all of your tax documents into email; and have a computer or smart device capable of conferencing with a remote Tax-Aide counselor and a printer.

Do it Yourself: Another option is to prepare your own tax return using IRS’s free tax filing service at:
