Packets are available at the front desk in February and March. Once returned, packets are reviewed and a United Way representative will schedule a review with the taxpayer at the library.

Tax Services FAQ
When Can I Get Help With My Taxes?
Tax documents are made available at the library from January through April and free tax preparation is available in February and March.
The Tipton County Public Library partners with United Way of Howard County and the Tipton County Foundation to provide tax services to community residents who meet certain income requirements.
Community members can bring in their tax documents and volunteers will verify that all documentation has been provided. Volunteers will copy documents and create a packet to be sent to United Way. United Way picks up the packets and certified accountants calculate the taxes. When the accountants are done, the packets are returned to the library and patrons are informed that their taxes are done and ready to be picked up.
How much does it cost?
Copies of tax forms are 10 cents per page.
Tax preparation services through the United Way are free to the community
Does the library submit my tax forms for me?
No. The library provides a place for patrons to meet with United Way volunteers.
When packets are returned from United Way, patrons will be notified to pick up and file their taxes.
