AARP Tax-Aide in St Mary’s County


The St. Mary’s County AARP Tax-Aide Program can help.  Our volunteer tax counselors provide free federal and state tax preparation for low to moderate income taxpayers of all ages with special attention to the senior population.  Membership in AARP is NOT a requirement.

Beginning in February, qualified/certified volunteers will be available at sites throughout St. Mary’s County to prepare both federal and state returns (*).  All returns are prepared and filed electronically.  Tax sites are located throughout the County.  Tax site hours vary by site and are available Monday through Saturday both day and evening.

Look under the “Locations and Times” tab for site information and hours.  An appointment is necessary at most sites.


Our appointment line opens January 19:  301-884-8370.

Please note:  Out-of-state, (any state other than Maryland), part-year, and prior-year returns require special attention.  When you make your appointment please let us know if you need this kind of service.
