Notice on AARP Tax Service

Dear Patron,

Due to lack of volunteers, there are no AARP Tax-Aide services in our area, including South Country Library, Patchogue-Medford and Center Moriches libraries. AARP is not offering traditional in-person tax assistance at any Long Island location this year due to COVID-19.

Resources to consider as you decide how best to prepare taxes this year:  

Health and Welfare Council of Long Isand/GetYourRefund.org

The Health and Welfare Council of Long Island is teaming with GetYourRefund.org to help you get your taxes done online. You just need to answers some questions on an online form and upload some documents using email. You will get an appointment to talk to a tax volunteer on the phone that will submit your taxes for you.

Bethpage VITA Program: Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

Bethpage Virtual VITA services will be available to taxpayers by completing the “Bethpage Virtual VITA Application” that will help us collect the necessary taxpayer information and tax documents in order to complete tax returns through a virtual process.
