Tax Assistance by Appointment

While the AARP tax help appointments are now over at the Everett Library, you can still get free tax help at the Seattle Public Library at branches throughout the city. This is made possible through a partnership with AARP and the United Way of King County. 

Additional appointments are available through the United Way in other locations.
