Beginning Feb. 13, the AARP Foundation is providing tax assistance and preparation through its Tax-Aide program — and it’s completely free.

The Winters site at Winters City Hall (318 First St.) is taking appointments for in-person preparation and filing. Sessions are on select Mondays from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., starting Feb. 13 and continuing through April 10. To set an appointment, call 530-207-0055, or visit

Taxpayers will interact with IRS-certified tax counselors in a one-on-one meeting to exchange documents. Taxpayers will remain on-site during the preparation to answer questions that may arise. Returns will be quality reviewed and filed electronically with a hard copy provided by the taxpayer. All documents will be returned.

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation’s largest volunteer-based free tax preparation service. Volunteers are trained and IRS-certified every year to ensure they understand the latest changes to the U.S. Tax Code.

Tax-Aide provides tax preparation assistance services nationwide. In 2020, 1.5 million taxpayers who used AARP Foundation Tax-Aide received more than $1 billion in income tax refunds. (These numbers were affected by the reduced availability of in-person assistance due to the pandemic.)
