Usually at this time of year, we’re actively promoting the AARP TaxAide preparation that takes place at the Library.  Unfortunately, none of the AARP TaxAide sites (our Library among them) will be providing services this tax season.

Guilderland Public Library has compiled a list of resources to help you get your taxes done!

Note that we are expecting to get a variety of Federal and New York State tax forms and instructions at the library, and will update this page when they arrive. These forms will be available for curbside pickup.

See below to download or print your own tax forms, and for other helpful hints.

Local Resources

The Guilderland Chamber of Commerce Business Directory is free to download from their website.
Please see page 12 of their PDF brochure (page 10 in the printed version) for local Accounting and Tax Service offices.

Note that these businesses will likely charge a fee to prepare your taxes, and are not affiliates of the Guilderland Public Library.
