We partner with AARP and The United Way of King County to offer free Tax Help. In-person Tax Help is not offered in Library buildings in 2021, but United Way of King County is offering free virtual Tax Help.
Tax Deadlines Changed
The deadlines for individuals to file and pay most federal income taxes are extended to May 17, 2021.
Pick Up Tax Forms Curbside
1040/ 1040-SR tax forms and instructions are available to pick up at all curbside service locations during curbside service hours. We have other tax forms available at the Central Library. You can Ask Us if we have a specific form available.
Print Tax Forms Curbside
You can print your tax documents and forms at one of our curbside printing locations during their curbside service hours. Tax forms do not count toward the 10 page daily printing limit. If you need to print more than 20 pages of forms and instructions, we suggest you order the forms directly from IRS.gov.
