During this pandemic, we appreciate your patience as we follow protocols to keep everyone—our community members and our staff—safe. We ask that you wear a mask at all times while you are in the library; if you do not have one, we have disposable masks available. We have reopened on a limited basis, and are ensuring that we follow all recommended health practices, including social distancing, disinfecting highly-trafficked areas, and wearing PPE. Thank you for your support of Decatur Public Library.
Like previous years, certified AARP volunteers can help you prepare your taxes, but this year there is no in person tax preparation. Instead AARP volunteers can prepare your taxes online with no person-to-person contact. Tax Payer Responsibilities.
You can use a virtual - contact-free - method where all communication is done online. You will have to scan or photograph your tax documents and email them.
For the contact free method:
You need an email address. You also need to be able to use Google Meet on your phone or your computer.
You need to make sure that we can prepare your tax return. You can check whether it is ‘in scope’ in the scope document (disponible en español ).
You can start contact-free tax preparation from this website. Click here to start an intake form. We want to be able to help you within a reasonable time. If we are too busy helping earlier clients the form may not be available right now and you have to try again later.
Please give us complete documentation; your return is only as good as the informationyou provide.
We email you from AARP Tax-Aide Decatur TX firstname.lastname@example.org. Our phone calls may come from 617-675-4444 (Massachusetts) or from 817-382-2096. Please respond to those numbers.
If you need in-person help with your tax preparation you can make an appointment with the Azle Public Library by calling 817-752-2682, or you can visit the Azle Public Library and pick up a packet of forms.
