About Us

Arizona Taxpayers,

The 2022 tax filing season closed on April 18th. If you were unable to file by that due date and you had 2022 reportable income, then you should try to file a 2022 tax return as soon as possible. There are penalties for late filing (beyond the due date). If you owe taxes, you may also be charged interest until your return is filed. If you are due a refund, however, there will not be any interest charges.

Arizona AARP Tax-Aide can still help you file your taxes even after the April 18th deadline. Please see the Tax-Aide Site information below.

All our Tax-Aide Volunteers wish to thank the 31,000+ taxpayers that visited one of our Arizona Tax-Aide sites this tax season. We hope you had a rewarding experience, and your tax questions/concerns were addressed. This year we were able to open 66 Tax-Aide sites in Arizona, which is a 12% increase over last year. We reopened several sites which had been closed since the pandemic, including Round Valley Public Library in Apache County and Queen Creek Library in Queen Creek.

If you have a tax question, or if you receive a notice from the IRS or Arizona Department of Revenue, we can still help you even if your local Tax-Aide site is closed. Arizona AARP Tax Aide maintains a year-round location in the Gateway Mall in Prescott. We also invite you to use the “Contact” link located on this website, as sites in Sun City and Tucson may also have some limited off-season hours.

Please select the “Something Else” subject and include a summary of your concern in the message area. Please include a phone number and email address as well as which Tax-Aide site helped you with your tax return. Please do not include financial information or your social security number. A Tax-Aide volunteer leader will review your information and respond.

If you would like to join our Tax-Aide team, please click the Volunteer tab on this website to start the process. We are seeking District and Site Leaders, Technology experts and Instructors, as well as tax counselors.

Tax Aide Site:
The Prescott Gateway Mall Tax-Aide site will be open year-round with reduced days and hours until mid-January 2024. An appointment is required. For more information, please email [email protected] or call (928) 277-1560.

If you were not able to file and expect that you are due a refund, then there is no penalty for filing after the April 18th filing date. We could even file your 2020 tax return in 2022.

If you have not filed and expect to owe taxes, we recommend you file as soon as possible and pay as much of your expected tax bill as you can to reduce penalties and interest charges.

You may visit IRS.gov or AZdor.gov for more information about filing and payments.
