Free tax assistance at Seattle Public Library branches, including Greenwood and Broadview

It’s coming up on tax time, and trained volunteers from United Way of King County and AARP will be at several libraries, including our neighborhood, to help prepare personal tax returns (not available for business taxes). Some locations will have drop-in assistance available on a first-come, first-served basis. Other locations will provide tax help by appointment.

The following locations in and near our neighborhood are for drop-in tax help. Schedules are subject to change, so check the calendar. No tax help on Monday, Feb. 19, when libraries are closed for Presidents Day.
