Tax Time

AARPAre you deep in the heart of taxes? If you’re confused by the filing process or like keeping your hard-earned money, AARP's certified tax advisors can help you with your tax returns this year.

Beginning in February, JCPL and AARP are providing free tax counseling and preparation assistance to all taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. IRS-certified volunteers will be on hand on certain dates through April 15 at Arvada, Columbine, Evergreen, Golden, Lakewood and Standley Lake Libraries to help you with your tax-related questions. Space is limited for each session and participants are encouraged to arrive early. Please note: appointments are required at the Evergreen Library.

We also have a limited selection of printed copies of State and Federal tax forms, and instruction books will be available at all library locations while supplies last. To print and order State or Federal forms and to find more tax help information, visit our Tax Guide. 

Benjamin Franklin once said, "...nothing is said to be certain, except libraries helping with your taxes." Ok, so that isn't exactly what he said, but it has a ring of truth to it and tax season is here. Fear not, dear countrymen, the Library and AARP are here to help.

Happy filing!
