AARP Tax Assistance

Volunteers from AARP offer tax preparation assistance to anyone free of charge, with a focus on taxpayers who are over 50 and have low to moderate income. AARP Tax Assistance at the Warren-Newport Public Library is offered by appointment only. This service will be available Fridays from 9:15AM until noon, starting on Friday, February 2, 2024 and running through Friday, April 12, 2024. Appointments may be made beginning on Wednesday, January 17. Please call 847-775-7062 to make an appointment or click here to schedule an appointment online.

An intake form must be completed before your appointment. These can be picked up at the library or you can plan to arrive early to complete it. Please allow at least one-half hour to complete the intake form.

Please bring to your appointment any tax-related papers and information you believe will be relevant.

In an effort to encourage more taxpayers to file electronically, the IRS and the Illinois Department of Revenue are sending us very limited tax forms and related supplies.  As a result, many tax filers will need to call the IRS or the Illinois Department of Revenue directly to request that forms be mailed or use the website listed below to download forms and/or file electronically. Tax filers are encouraged to plan ahead for tax forms and tax filing needs.
