(608) 297-3141  ************UPDATE*********************We are sorry to announce that due to a shortage of local volunteer leaders, AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will not be providing free tax assistance in Columbia, Marquette, and Sauk Counties for Tax Year 2019.  The following sites will not open in February 2020.
·         Columbia County Health & Human Services Building (Portage)
·         Marquette County UWEX (Montello)
·         Sauk County Aging & Disability Center (Baraboo)
While we are always actively recruiting new volunteers from the community, and there is always the possibility that with community involvement we could still provide tax service at these locations, at this time we are concentrating our efforts on recruiting and training that will allow us to reopen area sites in 2021.  Starting in January 2020, taxpayers needing tax assistance can check the Tax-Aide Site Locator for the closest locations or call 888-227-7669 toll-free.  The Tax-Aide Site Locator is found at
