Tax Time: Queens Library Helps You Prepare!

It’s that dreaded time of year again! But try not to worry too much. If you need assistance figuring out and filing your ‪tax return‬, Queens Library is here to help.

First, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance is offering free electronic tax-preparation assistance at 11 community libraries in February, March, and April. If your income was under $62,000 in 2015, you qualify to receive free online tax return filing assistance. Volunteers will be available, offering help in several languages, to guide you through preparing and e-filing your federal and state income tax returns using the tax-preparation software available on the NYS Tax Department website.

Free tax preparation is also provided by volunteers from the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) at 13 other Queens Library locations. While these sessions are open to all Queens Library customers, these volunteers are required to assist low-income seniors over age 50 before serving younger individuals or those with higher incomes, who will be served if time permits.

All our tax-preparation assistance locations are listed below. Be sure to check which ones are AARP volunteers and which have volunteers from the NYS Tax Department.

Whatever kind of tax-preparation assistance you prefer to use, please bring all of these documents with you to your sessions: a copy of your 2014 income tax return(s); all W-2, 1099, and other tax forms and documents for 2015; unemployment compensation statements; an SSA-1099 form if you received Social Security benefits; a photo I.D. for every person listed on your return; and Social Security cards or other official documentation for yourself and all dependents.

Schedules are subject to change. For updated information, check with participating libraries.
