The AARP TaxAide Program runs from February 7, 2022 through April 6, 2022.

Area volunteers will be providing free assistance to taxpayers with their 2021 Federal, State of Ohio, and Ohio School District tax returns at Way Public Library, Perrysburg, Ohio from February 7, 2022 through April 6, 2022. All returns are filed electronically.

Beginning Monday, January 31, 2022, appointments can be made by contacting the tax preparation site at 419-874-3135 ext. 136. We will be taking calls for appointments on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00a.m. - 3:00p.m. The tax site is closed on Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  If you choose to leave a voicemail please leave only one. We will return your call. Multiple voicemails slow down our response time in getting back to you.

Masks are required to be worn at both appointments.

We will be using the Drop Off Model for doing taxes. Participants are required to commit to TWO appointments. A brief initial intake appointment where you will leave all your documents with us, and a second appointment one week later to review and receive your completed tax return and your dropped off documents.

Participants will need to pickup the TaxAide Envelope Packet before their appointment. You can pick it up on days we are open (Monday, Wednesday & Thursday) or at least 30 minutes before your appointment so that the Intake/Interview form and all four Consent forms can be completely filled out and signed before your appointment begins.
