Income Tax Preparation Help

Have your taxes prepared for FREE at one of these tax sites*

AARP Logo Real$ense Logo

The Jacksonville Public Library is proud to partner with the Real$ense and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) TaxAide during the tax season each year to provide free tax preparation assistance at several library branches and
other sites throughout the city.

AARP TaxAide Sites (Income Limit: None)

AARP TaxAide sites are serviced by IRS-certified volunteers that provide free tax counseling and preparation services to millions of low- and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. There is no income or age limit for assistance at AARP TaxAide sites; however, AARP sites cannot assist rental property owners or small business owners.

Additional Free Tax Preparation Sites

Free tax preparation is available for individuals and families whose total household income does not exceed $52,000. All tax returns are prepared for free by IRS-certified volunteers. For all locations, hours of operations and what to bring, please visit www.realsensejax.org or call 632-0600.

Some small business owners can receive free tax preparation at select VITA sites. Restrictions apply. Visit Real$ense for a complete list of sites and services.
