The AARP of Maine website describes the process and timeline of their volunteers: 

In January of each year, over 200 dedicated AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers in Maine train and pass tests to become IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers. Then, from February 1 through April 15, these same volunteers staff over 70 Maine locations where they prepare and electronically file both federal and state income tax returns.

The service is truly free, also described as "no-strings-attached service".  Check out more information at their website and to find a Tax-Aide Site close to you.
