APL is a great resource for people who need help with their income taxes. On Wednesdays and Saturdays through April 14, the Main Library at 161 Washington Avenue offers free federal income tax preparation for people with an annual household income limit of $50,000. The income tax preparation services are provided by APL’s partners—volunteers from the Internal Revenue Service Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program and the AARP Tax-Aide program.

In addition to the tax preparation services available at the Main Library, most Albany Public Library locations stock basic federal and New York State income tax forms for individual tax filers. Librarians are helpful in connecting people to information that will help answer their tax questions. And, the library’s website has a special section dedicated to tax information.
