Tax Filling by AARP

Every year, AARP volunteers donate their time and knowledge to Jackson County patrons with free tax filing services.

Tax filing begins on the first Monday in February, and continues until April 15.

  • Tax preparers are at the Ripley branch on Wednesdays, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
  • Preparers are at the Ravenswood branch on Mondays and Fridays, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Filing is open to all patrons, regardless of age. In order to register to file, you must visit your preferred branch the day you’d like to file to sign in. As spaces are limited, we cannot guarantee a spot on the list for any given day, or take appointments in advance.
