AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program Offers Income Tax Filing Help at Bryan+College Station Library System

 

AARP Tax-Aide Program

To assist taxpayers with the process of filing personal income tax, the Bryan+College Station Library System has partnered with the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program to provide locations where taxpayers can access free personal tax preparation support. Trained volunteers will be available at Clara B. Mounce and Larry J. Ringer Public Libraries from February 1, 2017 through April 18, 2017 as part of the nation’s largest volunteer-run free tax preparation program.

Volunteers will be at each library to assist taxpayers with completing basic personal federal income tax forms. To receive assistance, please bring a valid form of identification, social security card or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) for everyone listed on the tax return, and last year’s tax return. Please note, social security cards or ITINs are required for the taxpayer and everyone listed on the tax return. Assistance is provided in-person on a first come, first served basis. While this program is intended primarily for low to moderate income individuals and families, a taxpayer seeking guidance with their personal income tax return will not be turned away.

The library staff will also print tax forms (except for multi-part forms) directly from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website at the rate of $0.10 per page. A double-sided form, such as the Form 1040, would cost $0.20. Taxpayers may visit the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) online for current tax information, to print tax filing forms for individual taxpayers, and for information on e-filing.

The libraries will not have business or employer forms such as the W-2 or 1099. If you are in need of business or employer forms, these may be ordered online or over the phone by calling 1-800-829-3676. While multi-part forms cannot be printed from the IRS website, they can be ordered at no cost from the IRS website or purchased at office supply stores. Tax product requests will be mailed directly to you at no cost.
