Status for 2022

During 2022, AARP will be preparing taxes at both the Missoula and the Hamilton Senior Center, we will not be working out of the Stevensville Senior Center. In order to protect our volunteers and our clients, we will still be following COVID protocols. That means:

  • You must wear a mask.

  • We will not be accepting walk-in appointments.

  • All of your documentation must be filled out and ready for us prior to your scheduled appointment time.

  • You will drop off your documentation and return later the same day* to pick up the completed tax return.

*same day service may not always be available.


  • For appointments in Missoula call 406.802.0201 after 10 am. The days the appointments will be taken vary from week to week, but Mondays are the hardest day to get through.

  • For appointments in Hamilton call the Senior Center at 406-563-5181 Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 10 until 2.

  • We have a limited number of appointments, especially early in the year.

  • Appointments will be released in 2 week increments, so try again later in the year.

We understand trying to get through to make an appointment can be a challenge. While our phone was ringing constantly in February, by March there were appointments available which sometimes went unused.

Preparing for your appointment

  • Stop by the Senior Center to pick up your packet of documentation that needs to be filled out BEFORE your appointment.

      • Missoula: 9-4, Monday-Friday

      • Hamilton: 10-2, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

  • Make sure to bring all of your tax documents at that time.

  • Have everything ready to hand off to a tax counselor at your appointed time.

  • Be prepared to return later that day to review and sign your completed taxes.
