Free AARP Tax Preparation @ Your Library

For many Americans, there are few things more taxing than preparing to file their annual income tax returns. Fortunately, three locations in the Santa Rosa County Library System are once again AARP Tax-Aide Sites. The AARP Tax-Aide program is the nation’s largest free, volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service, providing service to millions of low- and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older.


The AARP Tax-Aide program offers free one-on-one counseling to help individuals prepare and file basic tax forms, including the 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ and other standard schedules. No appointment is necessary; however, service is on a first come, first serve basis. Library locations are equipped to file your return electronically, allowing you to receive your return much faster.
