Free on-site income tax help on Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., from specially-trained AARP volunteers is available from until April 13 at the Civic Center Library. To find an AARP Tax-Aide site near you, visit AARP Tax or call toll-free (888) 227-7669.
All available appointments are currently filled. A Sign-In Sheet for Drop-Ins will be in the lobby of Civic Center Library at the podium near the front entrance each Thursday morning. (The Sign-In Sheet can be accessed when the café opens at 7 a.m.) Drop-ins may be seen after AARP volunteers help those with appointments first. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that volunteers will have time to help everyone who signs the Drop-In Sign-In Sheet. If and when a volunteer calls your name from the drop-in list, you must be present and have all necessary paperwork with you. Call (925) 373-5505 for further information.
