The Jacksonville Public Library is proud to partner with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) TaxAide during the tax season each year to provide FREE tax preparation.
Taxes will be prepared BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
AARP Tax-Aide sites are serviced by IRS-certified volunteers that provide free tax counseling and preparation services to millions of low-and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those age 50 and older. There is no income or age limit for assistance at AARP Tax-Aide sites. However, AARP sites cannot assist rental property owners or small business owners.
