AARP Tax Help
As of 1/24/2022, the AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will not be doing taxes at the Cumberland County Public Library for the upcoming tax season. However, AARP volunteers will be at Powhatan County Public Library and accepting drop-off paperwork for doing your taxes beginning February 1, 2022. Please refer to their library’s website (click on the photo above) for more information on making appointments to drop off your information and to pick up the return when finished. Please make sure to pay particular attention to the intake sheet you are given at drop-off, as there will not be any face-to-face time possible while the return is being processed.
For many years the Cumberland County Public Library has been able to provide space to the AARP Tax-Aide program in order for their volunteers to help local citizens with filing their personal income tax returns throughout the tax season. While the service will not be available at Cumberland this year, we are happy to inform you that you may make an appointment at the Powhatan County Public Library in order to have your taxes done this year. Please look at your last completed return in order to see what documents you may need.
Information you need to bring with you to file your taxes with AARP Tax-Aide are:
- Social Security card
- Photo ID for self, spouse, and ALL dependents (for children without a photo ID, please bring their Social Security card)
- Last year’s tax return
- ALL income tax documents
- If stock was sold, you MUST bring the date of purchase and the original purchase amount.
