  • Saturdays: 10:00am-2:00pm

A Big Thanks for a Thankless Job

On any list of onerous tasks, preparing a tax return is bound to be near the top. If for no other reason than that, we owe a big thank you to the good people of AARP Tax Aide who, every February, set up shop at several HCPL branches to give tax help to anyone who walks through the door and asks. The operative word there is “give.” They give their time, their expertise and their effort free of charge, and we, at HCPL, are grateful to them.

AARP Returns with Tax Services

Tax ReminderTax season is here and AARP has returned to the Northwest Branch to assist you. Starting Monday, February 02, you can visit our meeting room, where AARP will be available to help you e-file or answer your questions. This is a walk-in service and appointments are not necessary. AARP will be here on certain dates and times, so please check our calendar.

AARP is back with FREE tax assistance!

Well, it's everyone's favorite time of year again: tax season!  There is nothing, in my opinion, that is more fun than filing paperwork with the Internal Revenue Service!

Now I know that some of you may disagree.  Some of you just want to get this, quote-unquote, "tax dragon" off of your back and enjoy the rest of 2013.  If you are among these tax-adverse, or just want an extra pair of eyes to look over your forms (for free) before you submit them, you are in luck!

Starting this Saturday, February 2nd, our friends from the AARP will once again be here at the Northwest Library to offer free tax assistance to all who are interested throughout the tax season.  Schedule is as follows:

  • Saturdays (February 2nd - April 13th) from 10 am to 2 pm
  • Mondays (February 4th - April 15th) from 1 pm to 5 pm
  • Thursdays (February 7th - April 11th) from 1 pm to 5 pm
  • And a special session on Tax Day, Tuesday, April 16th from 10 am to 5 pm

You will be assisted on a first come, first served basis, and lines tend to form before we open.  But it's a great service that is yours to take advantage of.
