Need help filing your taxes, but it’s not in your budget to pay for professional tax services? The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) will host their annual Free Tax Help program at your Main Library (202 Cedar St.) beginning February 8. Sessions will run Wednesdays through Saturdays from 9:15AM to 1:15PM through April 15.
New Change to Program: Due to a reduce in the number of volunteers for this program, those who wish to participate must schedule an appointment. You will no longer be able to attend as a walk-in as before. Appointments may be scheduled a week in advance starting February 1. Participants may call 325-201-8799 to schedule a time to be seen, and this line will only be available to cal. Wednesdays through Saturdays from 9:00AM to 1:00PM starting February 1.
If you show up for this program as a walk-in, please be aware that you will likely not be seen, but an effort will be made to schedule you for the following day if there are available slots.
The library will make available any tax forms and booklets we receive from the IRS and if you’re in need of a form if filing on your own, feel free to locate them by visiting the IRS.gov online. Remember, library staff are not tax professionals so we will not be able to walk you through the filing process.
A second free income tax service will also be hosted by the Cornerstone Community Action Agency called VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance). Sessions will be hosted at Region 14 Education Services located at 4300 S. Treadaway Blvd. This services will run February 13 – April 17, Mondays through Fridays from 4:00PM to 7:00PM and the first and third Saturdays from 9:00AM to 1:00PM. Just like the tax help program at the library, this service will be open by appointment only by calling 325-625-4167.
