Material Ordering
  • Although online ordering is recommended for all AARP Tax-Aide approved materials, existing procedures for ordering materials by contacting Fulfillment by phone, email or fax remain available
  • For the coming season, the online ordering system will include all AARP approved materials, but NOT IRS materials (i.e., training and site forms) which should continue to be ordered through existing local procedures.

getting started
Getting Started…

Log on to

If you are a New User and need to register your Profile, click on the “Register Now” link on the Portal homepage.

For subsequent visits, you will use the “Registered Already?” link.



Registration and System Access Click on “New Portal Users Register Here” This screen will appear.


Next, you’ll be taken to the “Profile Created” screen confirming your new registration has been accepted. To login to the Portal click “Proceed to Login” now.



If you’re already registered in the Portal, as you enter the Volunteer homepage, click on the “Already Registered? Login to Portal” link to enter the Portal.

Many people who already have access to the Recruitment System will have access to the Portal for Material Ordering.



From here, enter your Login information and click “Login” to enter the Portal.



The tools available to you on the Portal are all listed under “My Preferences”. By clicking on “Orders”, you will be able to access the materials ordering form.

- Tax-Aide Order Form


When placing an order, enter all required information (indicated by a red asterisk), add any additional information, such as special shipping information.


If any required information is missing, an exclamation point will appear in that field. By clicking on the exclamation point, you can view an explanation of what information is needed in that field.


Be sure to review your order and make sure that everything is correct. If you need to make changes, you MUST use the “Edit” button at the bottom of the page. DO NOT use your browser’s “Back” button.


When you click “Submit”, the Portal brings up to a new order form. A copy of the order will be sent to your email, but no actual “order confirmation” screen appears. For this reason, we strongly suggest that you use the “Print Order Button” on this page before clicking “Submit”. This will give you a hard copy of your order.


This is the screen you will see once you click “Submit” on the Order Form.

Note that it provides an estimated delivery date and repopulates your address in preparation for another order. You may also log out or you access other Portal features.


You will receive an email confirmation similar to what is shown below after you submit a Materials Order. It lists your shipping information, what material you ordered and the quantity.
