Free tax assistance and forms available at public libraries

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has been providing free tax preparation assistance and forms since 1968.  In that time they have helped almost 50 million low and middle-income taxpayers file their taxes.  The service is run entirely by volunteers.

You can find a public library or other location that provides tax assistance through AARP by using the locator on the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide site.

Thousands of public libraries all over the country have partnered with AARP for years to provide tax assistance to their patrons.  You can find tax forms at virtually every public library and in most libraries you can schedule an appointment to meet with one of AARP’s Tax-Aide advisors.  The advisors will assist low and middle-income filers with their tax preparation for free.

Of course you can also e-file your taxes on a library computer.  Tax time can be quite busy for e-filers so you should try to reserve plenty of computer time and reserve early to make sure you have access to a computer.  Tax-Aide representatives can assist library patrons choosing to e-file as well.

Tax time can be quite difficult.  Visiting a public library can make filing your taxes a lot easier.
