The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and AARP Tax-Aide programs help prepare federal and state income tax and property tax refund returns. There are over 220 free tax preparation sites available across Minnesota. You may qualify for free tax preparation for your returns.

Do I qualify for free tax preparation?

You can generally get help at a VITA site if any of the following are true:

  • You are age 60 or older.
  • You are a person with a disability.
  • You speak limited or no English.
  • Your annual income is less than $55,000.

AARP Tax-Aide sites do not have income or age restrictions. All sites only prepare basic returns.

Is free tax preparation currently available?

No. Volunteer tax preparation sites are closed for the year. Check back in late January for information about sites open in 2019.

How do I find free tax preparation sites near me?

Use our search feature or interactive map below.


  • Volunteer organizations provide us information on their free tax preparation sites. Although this information was current when posted, site hours and dates may change. Review site information before visiting.
  • Confirm the program (VITA or AARP Tax-Aide) in your search results as this may limit which sites you may use. See qualifications above.
  • All sites provide services in English. To find a site that provides assistance in another language, use the Language drop-down menu.
  • If you are a person with a disability, we encourage you to call the site directly to ask about site accessibility or request an accommodation.
  • If you cannot locate a site near you, call 651-296-3781 or 1-800-652-9094 (toll-free) for assistance.
The Free Tax Preparation Search and the interactive map will be available when filing season opens in January 2019.
