Tax Help for Older People

What does it do?

The charity Tax Help for Older People provides free tax advice to older people (over 60) on low incomes (less than £20,000 a year household income). Tax Help aims to help people across the whole country and now offers surgeries in Waltham Forest.

Tax Help has over 550 volunteer advisers across the United Kingdom, most of them currently practising or retired tax professionals, including retired HM Revenue and Customs staff. Volunteers give their time and expertise free of charge because they recognise how difficult the tax system can be for older people who can’t afford professional advice and want to use their skills to benefit the community.
