Tax season start date TBA.
The filing deadline to submit 2020 tax returns is April 15.
Important note from the IRS: The IRS reminds taxpayers that, by law, the IRS cannot issue refunds claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) before mid-February. While the IRS will process those returns when received, it cannot issue related refunds before mid-February.
OCLS will once again be partnering with AARP to provide tax assistance. This year, AARP volunteers will be available, by appointment only at select locations, to provide modified free income tax help.
Customers will need to make an online appointment through the AARP website (which should be live by the end of January). At the time of the customer’s appointment, an AARP volunteer will scan their documents at the branch location and another AARP Volunteer will complete the tax return offsite. Customers will be notified once their Tax form is complete and, by appointment, return to the branch location to sign and file the return.
Customers must make an appointment through the AARP website and walk-ins will not be accommodated. The Library will not be involved in making appointments.
AARP Volunteers will be at the following locations from 10am-2pm:
Southeast Branch Mondays and Thursdays Beginning Feb 1-April 15
South Creek Branch Wednesdays and Thursdays Beginning Feb 3-April 15
West Oaks Branch Wednesdays and Fridays Beginning Feb 3-April 14
