Arlington Central Library

Welcome to Arlington Central Tax-Aide

We will be open for tax preparation services at Arlington Central Library from February 2 – April 18, 2023.  

Our hours of service are:

Tuesdays, 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM

Thursdays, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

We can help with most, but not all tax returns, so be sure to read the list of items on the scope page that we cannot help with.   

Make an Appointment

You can make an appointment by clicking on this link: Make an appointment 

It's faster to make the appointment yourself, but if you have trouble doing that, you may call us at 703-829-6192 and we will help you make an appointment.

Walk-in service may be available, depending on counselor availability. We always help people with appointments first though. Afternoons are generally less busy, if you want to try coming without an appointment. In either case, you will need to fill out our forms ahead of meeting with a tax counselor.

Prior to your appointment

You will also need to fill out some forms for us. These may be obtained ahead of your appointment at the library reference desks on the first or second floor, from us during our open hours, or they can be downloaded here:

Intake Booklet (required) 

Supplemental Forms (required) 

Worksheet for Self-Employed Individuals  (optional)

Worksheet for Itemizing Deductions (optional)

Worksheet for Education Credits  (optional)

How We Will Be Operating

When you come for your appointment, you will be interviewed by a tax counselor. Once he or she has collected your information, you will leave our site. The counselor will prepare your return. A second counselor, a "Quality Reviewer," will then review the return.  When the review is successfully completed, we will text or call you to advise you when to return to pick up your completed return and your tax documents.

When you return, we will review the return with you and answer any questions you might have. Once you have approved the return, we will file it electronically for you.

Contact us with any questions

By phone:  703-829-6192 - Leave your name, phone number, and a brief message and one of our counselors will call you back within 24 hours. Please answer calls from unknown numbers during this time. 

By email:  Do not include sensitive information such as your social security number when communicating with us by email.

We look forward to serving you this tax season.
