AARP Foundation Tax-Sites Now Open

Sites will begin opening on February 1 and continue through April 15. Phone service to provide locations and hours is available daily, Mon-Fri calling 502-394-3443 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Sites do not take reservations but generally provide service on a first-come, first-serve unless the return or situation needs special handling.

The service is intended primarily for seniors and those with low-moderate income, (typically under $60,000). See the FAQs  and Hints tabs for addition details regarding typical questions and responsibilities of tax payers.

Persons with REIT’s (Real Estate Investment Trusts) and/or Mutual Funds should wait until mid-March since many such investors will likely receive corrected 1099’s up until that time and can avoid having to make an additional trip to file an amended return.

Eleven regular sites will provide at least weekly service as shown under the “Sites” tab. Three major changes have occurred since last season:

  • Buechel Park will be open Mon-Thurs, sorry no Friday service this season
  • Central Government Center has added Friday service in addition to Mon and Wed
  • Walnut Street Baptist Church, a new site, will be open Wed and Sat.

Limited service will also be provided at three additional temporary sites: the Downtown Branch Library, Goodwill and the Center for Accessible Living.

This free service is a co-operative effort by the IRS and the AARP Foundation.


Editor’s Note:

  • AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has free tax preparation assistance across the country.  Look under the “Sites” tab for local as well as sites in all 50 states.


Tax-Aide offices are open February 1 - April 15.  Tax-Aide does not have copies of your return – see below for further information.

For assistance in the interim, please contact your local IRS or State Department of Revenue office.  Their address and phone numbers are listed in the blue pages of the phone book.

Taxpayer Advocate Service operates independently of all other IRS Offices and reports directly to Congress. It protects taxpayers’ rights and ensures that all taxpayers are treated fairly, and that they know and understand their rights under the IRS’s Taxpayer Bill of Rights.  For additional information, go to or contact the Louisville office at 502-912-5050 or 877-777-4778.
