AARP Tax-Aide Preparation

IRS trained and certified AARP volunteers will prepare tax returns for individuals of all ages at no cost.  They will meet with individual taxpayers and prepare the Federal and State tax forms for electronic filing. 

Guidelines and Restrictions

They reserve the right to deny service for returns that are too complex or extensive.

They cannot assist taxpayers with:

  • returns for other states
  • returns that involve rental income, farm income, business activity other than sole proprietorships with expenses less than $25,000, or depreciation

While there is no income limit, service is intended for low to moderate income families. To make the limited number of appointments available for those taxpayers, they prefer those with family income above $100,000 to go to paid tax preparers.

Required Documents

Stop by the Library before your appointment date to pick up a packet which contains forms to be completed prior to the appointment and financial documents you must bring with you.

The following are required at your appointment:
  • social security cards for all persons to be listed on the return
  • driver license or photo ID for all taxpayers


Appointments are required and available February 3-April 14 on Mondays from 12-9 pm and Saturdays from 9:15-3pm (no session Feb. 19).

Call the library at (518) 371-8622 to sign up for an appointment. If you need to cancel or reschedule, call the Library as soon as possible so the appointment time can be made available to another taxpayer.
