Tax Filing Assistance

Bellingham Public Library partners with the Tax-Aide Program of the AARP Foundation to provide free tax preparation at the Central Library each year.

Tax preparation volunteers will help people with federal income tax returns January 23 through April 18, 2017 at the Central Library. The schedule and other details about the assistance program is available on the Tax Filing Assistance 2017 page.

Tax Forms

All income tax materials can be downloaded from the IRS website. They also can be ordered for delivery by mail.

Patrons can use library computers, WiFi, and printers to download and print tax materials, and find helpful tax preparation resources.

Due to Internal Revenue Service cutbacks, taxpayers seeking printed tax forms will find fewer of them in public libraries. Those forms and booklets that we do receive are located near the Help Desk on the main floor of the Central Library.
