Call for Volunteers to Assist Seniors with 2018 Income Tax Preparation

Each year the Naperville Park District partners with AARP to offer area seniors free income tax preparation assistance at the Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center between February and April.

Persons interested in volunteering to help with this program are invited to investigate the AARP Foundation’s Tax-Aide program that is co-sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service. To locate the relevant information visit, scroll down to AARP Foundation Tax-Aide and click on the link to view details about the program. From there, scroll down and click on the gold-colored box,” Become a Volunteer,” to access the application.

The Naperville Park District’s Alfred Rubin Riverwalk Community Center will serve as a tax assistance location in 2018 with appointments available on Mondays and Wednesdays from early February through early April. Taxpayers need not be members of AARP to take advantage of the services provided by the free program.

Volunteers become certified as tax preparation counselors by studying the IRS-prepared materials, learning to use the computer-based e-filing system and attending classes during the third week in January, 2018. They must pass open-book tests annually in order to be certified as Tax-Aide preparers.

Please visit for more information on becoming a 2018 Tax-Aide volunteer and to register for upcoming training classes. Those who need assistance navigating the website may call Phoebe Bickhaus, AARP Coordinator for District 25, at 630-357-7355.

After completing the required information online, prospective volunteers will be contacted by a representative from AARP who will provide details regarding the upcoming training class and will answer questions regarding the program.
