Participate in Free Tax Help @ Your Library

Tax Season may not be the time of year everyone looks forward too, but your Abilene Public Library can help to make the filing process a little less taxing.  Free Tax Help at your library returns on February 1, running through April 13.  The public will have ample opportunities to participate in this program that helps you to e-File your taxes.

Partnering with the AARP, IRS-trained volunteers will be on hand to help you through the filing process.  The Main Library will host weekly sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays, while the Mockingbird Branch will host this program on Fridays and Saturdays.  All sessions will run from 10AM to 3PM with participants being helped on a first-come, first-served basis (no reservations).

Due to the popularity of this program, slots may fill up quickly.  If a session closes early, we will notify people through our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  We apologize in advance if you're not able to be seen the day you arrive.  There will be a limited number of volunteers available to assist people during each session; however, the public will have more than 40 opportunities to attend a session.  Wow!

For complete information on this program, visit our Free Tax Help Page on our website.  There you will find the weekly schedule, what you need to bring, and links to some of the most requested tax forms for printing out at home for your use.

Please Note: We do not receive a wealth of tax forms to offer to the public at each library location.  All tax forms and booklets are available online, or staff may print out requested forms for you at $0.15 per page.
