Free Tax Help at Queens Library!

It’s that time of year again!

If you need help figuring out and filing your ‪tax return‬, come to Queens Library for free tax-preparation assistance if you're over 60 or earn less than $64,000 a year.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance is offering free electronic tax-preparation assistance at 10 community libraries in January, February, March, and April if your income was under $64,000 in 2016. 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 the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) through the IRS Tax Counseling for the Elderly program. Counselors trained by the IRS will help you complete your tax return 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 60 before serving younger individuals or those with higher incomes, who will be served if time permits.

Visit our Tax Assistance Programs webpage to choose the best option for you and see the available times and library locations.

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