Effective immediately until April 18, AARP Foundation is offering free tax assistance and preparation through its Tax-Aide program, according to a news release. 

The service is open to anyone, especially to those who are 50 and older, who cannot afford a tax

Tax-Aide is offered in conjunction with the IRS, the release said. 

Last year, AARP said taxpayers who used AARP Foundation Tax-Aide received $1.41 billion in income tax refunds and more than $240 million in Earned Income Tax Credits. 

The service is available to AARP members and non-members. 

The program will be offered at 77 sites in Arizona including libraries, senior centers, and other locations.
