Tax Help SummaryThe Seattle Public Library, AARP, and the United Way of King County are working together to offer free tax help at 12 Library locations through mid-April. Trained volunteers will be available to answer questions and prepare personal tax returns.
Tax Help DescriptionAt the self-service tax prep lab, an IRS certified volunteer will be available to help answer questions as needed and you will file your own taxes online using www.myfreetaxes.com. This is a good option for someone who is comfortable utilizing an online platform independently but would like the option to ask questions as needed. You must earn $64,000 or less annually and have a valid email address to use this service.

This service is free and available to individuals. Reservations are not required, but those seeking assistance are asked to check in at the intake table on Level 5. The free service is not available for business tax returns.

Due to federal budget cuts the IRS is unable to provide the Library with certain tax forms and instruction booklets. Most IRS forms are available online at www.irs.gov. You may make black-and-white prints of the forms from Library computers for $.15 per page.

Drop-in tax help is offered on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early enough to ensure that we have time to help you.

To receive tax help, bring the documents listed here.
