AARP Tax Assistance

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 February 05 – April 15, 2020. There will be no tax help on February 12 as we are closed for the holiday (Lincoln's Birthday). 

Call 510-597-5023 for an appointment (starting January 29, 2020) for February and April appointments. In March, all meetings will be walk-in only. 

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.
