AARP is once again helping Cobb County residents file their taxes on time and correct. There is no charge for the service, and all tax preparers are trained by AARP. AARP Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation service. AARP Tax-Aide volunteers prepare federal, state and local tax returns for taxpayers who have straightforward tax returns starting February 1 through April 15. Membership in AARP is not required and the service is available to everyone regardless of age. Appointments are not required, and electronic filing is available at all locations.

Taxpayers should bring their 2017 return and all 2018 tax documents. Each taxpayer must also present their social security cards or other identification documents for themselves and all dependents.

For direct deposit refunds, taxpayers must have their checkbook and a valid blank or canceled check.
