Free tax preparation is available to the public at thirteen locations around San Antonio that are operated by volunteers for the AARP Foundation.  This includes Wonderland of the Americas Mall, where the AARP Foundation will begin preparing tax returns on Wednesday, February 6th and continue each Wednesday through April 10th from 9 am to 4 pm Appointments are not necessary at the Wonderland location. Taxpayers do not have to be members of AARP nor do they have to be over 65 to take advantage of this free service.
The AARP Tax-Aide program is the nation’s largest volunteer-run free tax preparation service that serves low- to moderate-income taxpayers. Nationally, there are 35,000 volunteers at 6,500 sites that have helped over two and one-half million people navigate complicated tax codes, ensure proper credits and deductions, and file their federal, state, and local tax returns.
From February 1 to April 17, more than 110 Bexar County volunteers will have helped over four thousand people file their taxes. The volunteers are trained and IRS-certified each year to ensure their knowledge of the latest changes and additions to the U.S. Tax Code.  As the Tax Code has become increasingly complicated, older and lower-income taxpayers may overpay their taxes or have to rely on expensive and, for many, unaffordable professional tax preparation services.  By using AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, taxpayers avoid tax preparation fees and pitches for high-interest refund loans.  With electronic filing, refunds normally are received within two weeks.
Although there are some restrictions on preparing certain tax forms and very complex returns, AARP volunteers are certified by the IRS to prepare most of the tax forms needed by the typical taxpayer. To find a location of a nearby AARP Tax-Aide site, taxpayers can call 211 or the San Antonio AARP office at 210-348-8684. Locations and additional information also are available online at www.aarp.org/taxaide.
