Drop-offYes

 

What does drop-off service mean? During an initial visit, you leave your tax documents with a volunteer. Your documents are used throughout the return preparation process and securely stored when not in use. In a second visit, you work with a volunteer to finalize the filing of the tax return. You leave with your tax documents and a completed and electronically filed tax return.

For all tax preparation questions, please call 603-589-4642. This phone is only staffed by Tax-Aide volunteers on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9 am - 2 pm. Someone will return your message as soon as possible. 

Please note: library staff cannot book your tax appointment or advise you on taxes.
