Due to changes by the Tax Forms Outlet Program, we will only have a limited amount of forms this year.  We will have *NO* instruction books available. We do have reproducible forms available to use on the copy machine and forms and instructions are available at

Internal Revenue Service (IRS)

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

AARP tax assistance begins February 2, 2015. See our calendar for a complete list of dates and time as well as what to bring. AARP Tax-Aide is a free, confidential service which prepares tax returns and answers tax questions.  AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be at various library locations from February 3, 2015, until April 14, 2015, to help low and middle-income taxpayers (with special attention to those age 60 and older) fill out their federal income tax returns.

*Please note: If previous returns were filed at Central Library, come to the Northeast Branch to file.  The Northeast Branch is the surrogate location for Central Library users.*

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

VITA is a free tax preparation assistance for individuals and households with annual income of $53,000 or less. See our calendar for a complete list of dates and time as well as what to bring. VITA volunteers will be at the Lake Arlington Branch Library from January 26, 2015, until April 13, 2015. This year, we are able to accept royalty income on Form 1099-MISC, Box 2 and Sch K-1. Contact 2-1-1 for additional information. Walk-ins are welcome.

State Income Taxes

Texas, along with six other states, Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming, do not have a state income tax. If you have lived part of the year in another state, you might have to pay taxes there.
