Ascend is proud to be a partner in AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program. AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is the nation's largest volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service. In 2014, 35,000 compassionate volunteers at more than 5,000 tax sites, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, provided 2.6 million people with free tax help. While the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program is extremely successful, there are still 19 million low to moderate income taxpayers that qualify for free tax preparation services. In order to reach more taxpayers, we need more volunteers and we need help reaching targeted audiences.
