Coming up at AARP

Need Help with Your Income Taxes?

If you haven’t filed your income taxes yet, the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide site in Minot is ready to help middle- and low-income taxpayers complete their 2018 federal and state tax returns.

You do not have to be an AARP member to take advantage of this free service.

The Minot Tax-Aide site is located at the American Legion, 1949 N. Broadway. Hours are 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday by appointment only. Call 701-509-1446 to make an appointment.

Individuals should ensure that they have all of the documents they need to file before coming to the Tax-Aide site, including Social Security cards, a photo ID, and a copy of last year’s tax returns.
