Free Tax Help Offered at Jefferson County Public Library

(Lakewood, Colo. – Jan. 24, 2014) Beginning Feb. 1, Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) will offer free tax preparation assistance to individuals who require help filing their tax returns.

Each year, JCPL partners with AARP to offer free counseling and preparation assistance to all taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. IRS-certified volunteers will be on hand to help people on a walk-in basis at the Arvada, Belmar, Columbine, Lakewood and Standley Lake Libraries, and by appointment at the Evergreen and Golden Libraries. Space is limited for this popular series, so patrons are encouraged to arrive early. Location, time and date information can be found at jeffcolibrary.org/research/taxes.

The Library will also offer open computer times at the Belmar Library’s Computer Training Center to file taxes online. In addition, a limited selection of printed copies of State and Federal tax forms and instruction books will be available at all JCPL locations while supplies last.

Additional resources on tax information and tax help can be found at jeffcolibrary.org/research/taxes.
