Free TAX-AIDE Service

For our low and middle-income community members we are excited to announce that free tax return help is now available to you!

AARP TAX-AIDE volunteers are available again this year to prepare and electronically file tax returns in Clallam County free of charge. The program is sponsored by the IRS and the AARP Foundation and will be available until April 15.

TAX-AIDE volunteers are IRS-certified to prepare most basic tax returns and will ensure that you receive all the deductions and credits for which you are eligible. Again, this service is for basic tax returns, not for taxpayers with income from rental properties or with complicated business returns.

Drive Up Service

This year, returns will be prepared remotely and not at the usual locations. You will not need to be present during the preparation process. This is to ensure both your health and the safety of our volunteers. Please follow this process:

  1. Make an appointment at one of the locations below. No walk-in services will be provided
  2. Once you have made your appointment, you will be told where to pick up a packet containing instructions on how to proceed as well as the following forms:
    • Form 13614-C, Intake/Interview Quality Review
    • Form 14446, Virtual VITA/TCE Taxpayer Consent
  3. When you arrive at your appointment, stay in your vehicle. A volunteer will meet you in the parking lot and take your information and tax documents. 
  4. The information will be scanned and documents returned to you. 
  5. You may collect your completed return at the same location one week later.
