Free Tax Help Clinics

Spectrum Generations Sponsors Free

Federal & Maine Income Tax Preparation


It’s that time of year again! 

Spectrum Generations is once again sponsoring FREE tax assistance with AARP trained and certified Tax-Aide Volunteers.  Each year AARP Tax-Aide Volunteers must attend training and pass a current test to be allowed to prepare taxes for consumers.  If you would like help with your federal or state tax forms, please call your closest center directly to make an appointment or for more information (see contact information below).

Necessary items to bring to your appointment are: previous year’s tax return, income documentation, Social Security cards for applicants and dependents, bank account and routing numbers for direct deposit, and a Photo ID.
