WOBURN - Free income tax assistance preparation will be available for low to moderate income Woburn residents at the Woburn Public Library, 45 Pleasant St., Woburn, on Saturday mornings from Feb. 9 through April 13. Appointments will be at 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., and 11:15 a.m. Local tax-aide volunteers, who are trained by AARP and certified by the IRS, will provide assistance with both federal and state tax forms.
Appointments are required, and space is limited. Due to the popularity of this program, appointments are limited to Woburn residents. The library maintains a list of other organizations that offer tax assistance for those non-Woburn residents who are in need of assistance.
These appointments are available on a first come, first serve basis. Each one-on-one session will last approximately 45 minutes. Participants should bring a copy of last year’s tax returns, as well as W-2s, 1099s and other documents necessary for tax form preparation. Please call the Woburn Public Library at 781-933-0148 to sign up for an appointment, beginning Monday Jan. 28.
The Woburn Public Library will also have a limited supply of Federal tax forms available this year.
