tax Counseling for the elderly (TCE)

The TCE program offers free tax assistance to certain taxpayers, particularly those who are 60 years of age and older. The program is operated by IRS-certified volunteers who specialize in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues unique to seniors. Volunteers who participate in the TCE program are often retired individuals associated with non-profit organizations that receive grants from the IRS.


Before going to a TCE site, check out IRS Publication 3676-B for a list of available services, and review the IRS's What to Bring page to ensure you have all the required documents and information that the volunteers will need to assist you.


TCE sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls and other convenient locations across the country. To locate your nearest TCE site, call 800-906-9887 or use the IRS's TCE Locator Tool.

When searching for a TCE site, keep in mind that a majority of the TCE sites are operated by the AARP Foundation’s Tax Aide program. To locate the nearest AARP TCE Tax-Aide site, use the AARP's TCE Site Locator Tool or call 888-227-7669.
