*FINAL DAYS FOR AARP VOLUNTEER TAX PREPARATION
We are down to the final 4 dates to have your basic 2016 income taxes prepared by an AARP-certified volunteer, free of charge, at the Keyport Public Library. Wednesday and Thursday 04/05/2017-04/06/2017, and Wednesday and Thursday 04/12/2017-04/13/2017 are the FINAL days we will have volunteers in-house. Hours are between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, however, due to overwhelming demand, we recommend arriving at the library by 9:45 am if you wish to be seen that day. IMPORTANT NOTES: There are no appointments to see the volunteers. All patrons will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis, and signed up for the same day. No new sign-ups will be accepted after 1:00 pm, so that the preparers may finish by 2:00 pm. WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING: You must have all relevant tax documents with you, including all income documentation (W2s, 1099s, etc), proof of health coverage, etc, from all professions and income sources from the 2016 tax year. You must have your social security card as well as a state-issued photo ID with a name that matches your social security card, as well as the name on all of your tax documents. If possible, you should bring a copy of your previous year’s (2015) tax return. Once you are signed up on the day your taxes will be prepared, you will be asked to fill out an intake form before seeing the preparer. If you prefer to fill out the intake form at home in advance of your appointment, they are available for pickup at the library during all regular hours.
