Tax Help at Carnegie

Come down to the Carnegie Branch of the Jackson District Library to have Larry Socie, veteran of VITA, help prepare your taxes for FREE! Please email adultservices@myjdl.com, or call 788-4087 and ask for the Reference Desk if you have questions. 

Don’t pay to file your taxes.

If your household earned less than $66,000 in 2017 you can file both your federal and state returns for free.

Free doesn’t always mean free.

Some “free” tax preparation products only cover federal (not state), or charge extra for anything beyond the most basic forms.

Let the experts handle the details.

This program will run from Tuesday, February 4th until Monday, April 15th (tax deadline day). Additional dates & times may be added in March and April, so stay tuned.

*** Volunteer Opportunity: If interested in volunteering to be a tax instructor, please contact the Adult Services Department. ***

MyFreeTaxes is the only free, national, online tax filing product offered by a nonprofit, because United Way fights for the financial stability of every person in every community. United Way is committed to ensuring that people can easily and accurately file their taxes to receive the refunds they deserve.

  • MyFreeTaxes is mobile optimized so anyone can access MyFreeTaxes from their computer, tablet, or smart phone.
  • Most filers complete their taxes in less than an hour.
  • MyFreeTaxes is completely free for a household who earned less than $66,000 in 2017 — whether you file in multiple states, work freelance or a side gig, or earn investment income.
