Free Tax Assistance | Oakland Libraries

The Oakland Public Library and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) are partnering to offer free tax assistance to residents at select libraries during the 2020 tax season.

Trained volunteers will be available to answer questions and prepare personal tax returns between Feb 5, 2020 – April 15, 2020.

Be sure to bring copies of federal and state tax returns for last year, all materials pertaining to your 2019 income, a picture ID and your Social Security card. Come with your spouse if filing jointly.

2020 Free Drop-In Tax Help
Feb 5 – April 15, 2020
Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10 am – 3 pm
Main Oakland Public Library, 125 14th St, Oakland

Due to severe budget cuts, the IRS is no longer providing libraries with a large selection of paper tax forms and instructions. If you need tax forms, you can either download them from the IRS website, or visit the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center at 1301 Clay Street in downtown Oakland. The Taxpayer Assistance Center is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
