Abilene Public Library has been informed by the AARP that the Tax Aide programs at our Main and Mockingbird libraries have been suspended indefinitely due to COVID-19. The statement on their website www.aarp.org reads, in part: "As coronavirus (COVID-19) developments change hour by hour, AARP Foundation is doing its part to flatten the curve of transmission. A top priority for us is ensuring we are protecting those most at risk, including our volunteers and taxpayers. Therefore ,we are suspending AARP Foundation Tax-Aide services beginning March 16 until further notice.
We will continue to assess whether we can open again in some or all sites for the remainder of the tax season and if the tax season is extended. Check this web page periodically or call 1-888-227-7669 for updates about the status of Tax-Aide sites."
All Abilene Public Library locations have access to tax forms you may need. Free copies of Form 1040 and 1040SR are available, along with their instruction books, and all forms are easily downloaded and printed from the IRS website for $0.15 a page.
