For instructions on how to change the information in the Portal, locate and open the Tax-Aide: Volunteer Portal – New folder on the Libraries Tab of the Volunteer Portal.
To change your name, email address or password, see information in the 01 - Accessing the Volunteer Portal folder.

If additional assistance is required, please contact your local leaders or the state Administration Specialist (ADS).
The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program reimburses volunteers for reasonable and necessary out-of-pocket expenses related to tax assistance, training, administrative activities, and supplies. Program funds are not intended to reimburse volunteers for the total cost of their participation, but to ensure that volunteers are not excluded for personal affordability reasons.
Reimbursement guidelines vary based on volunteer role. Please consult the Policy and Procedures Manual, located on the Volunteer Portal, for directions on what can be included on a reimbursement request and the reimbursement method best suited to your personal situation. All expense reimbursements must be submitted, and approved by a volunteer’s supervisor, no later than June 30 each year.
