AARP Tax Aide Providing Tax Assistance at Katy/Fulshear Libraries 2017


The AARP Tax Aide is offering FREE tax preparation assistance at Four local libraries in the Katy Texas area. These programs will begin on Wednesday February 1, 2017 and end on Tuesday April 18, 2017. This free service is available to individuals with low or moderate income. Special attention will be paid to those who are age 60 or more. Yes unfortunately it is Tax Time once again. I do not know their definition of low income but there maybe some data on their website and click on the link above.


Similar to prior years, programs are being held at these Four local Katy and Fulshear Library locations:


Cinco Ranch Branch Library - 2620 Commercial Center Blvd Katy Texas - Mondays from 1 PM until 5 PM , English and Spanish.


Bob Lutts Fulshear /Simonton Branch Library - 8100 FM 359 South, Fulshear TX. -  Fridays from 1 PM till 4 PM. English and Spanish


Katy Branch Library - 5414 Franz RD, Katy TX 77493 - Tuesday from 12:30 PM - 4:30 PM ; English and Spanish.


Maud Marks Branch Library - 1815 Westgreen Blvd. Katy TX 77450- Monday 10 AM to 2 PM and Friday 10 AM to @ PM. English and Spanish

This no charge service is provided by the AARP Foundation in cooperation with the IRS. This program started back in 1968 and has helped almost 50 million low to moderate income taxpayers.  AARP Foundation Tax-Aide has over 5,000 locations. The staff consists of over 34,000 IRS- certified volunteers which I think is a huge number. Federal Taxes are no fun as we all know and are way too complicated for most folks plus we now have to deal with reporting health insurance coverage and deal with IRS audits generated via computer selection with no human intervention. .


Here is another in a long line of excellent programs being put on in conjunction with the local libraries in the Katy area. I think this is an excellent opportunity for folks who qualify to get needed tax assistance and the Good Lord knows most folks need some type of help in this convoluted tax structure we all have to live with and deal with here in the US. I am a CPA and I feel sorry for folks who have to struggle their way through the myriad of rules and forms. I have published this same type of blog in the past as I know all too well how ridiculous and complicated these tax issues have become. As in prior years, please contact AARP Tax Aide or the local library as I will not be doing any new returns.


If you need help with your taxes and you qualify for assistance try AARP Tax Aide providing Tax Assistance at Katy Libraries as I feel confident you will be satisfied and certainly a major worry will be off your back for at least another year. This event is open to the public.

This is great information and very timely information to share. Nice work on this localism post and on helping to spread the word about this service.

Thanks for sharing such informative post. If we see, there are number of tax assistance companies who offer tax related services to ease our work. Have read an article about small business income tax service NJ who also offers tax assistance service in New Jersey and are well known there. Such experts help us a lot in dealing with long term, time and money taking tax procedures.
