Discover Free Tax Preparation Assist At These 5 Pop Ups In El Paso

Tax season is here and if you need help filing, then rest easy because free tax preparation assistance is available thanks to City Parks and Recreation and AARP TaxAide.

Filing taxes is always a nerve-wracking experience, so folks who need help filing their taxes this year can file for free in-person on select days and hours for residents of El Paso.

The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation has teamed up with AARP TaxAide to offer free income tax preparation assistance by appointment only. (No Drop-ins Accepted)

El Pasoans can make an appointment at several locations throughout the city, starting February 1 through April 15, 2022.

While there are various free online tax services, having a real-life person help prepare your taxes is always preferred. Plus, AARP TaxAide volunteers are certified by the IRS and AARP, and residents of El Paso need not be AARP members to take advantage of the free service.

The tax deadline this year is April 15, and even though it may be three months away, why wait? Get a head start and get your refund by making an appointment today.
