2022 Tax Help

This year tax assistance will take place at some Mason (Hoodsport and North Mason) and Thurston County (Lacey, Tumwater, and Yelm) branches. Tax forms will be available at all branches (after they are received from the IRS).

Library staff are available to help locate forms by email at or chat Monday - Saturday from 9 am–5 pm (service is not available on holidays).


Mason County

Starting February 5, 2022, tax help will be available 1st and 3rd Saturdays 12-4pm by appointment which can be made by calling the Hoodsport branch. During their appointment, patrons will drop off paperwork and complete an interview then wait in the library or their car while volunteers complete their taxes. Then volunteers will call the patron when it is completed.

Thurston County

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide will offer free tax preparation in Thurston County this year with appointments beginning in February and ending in mid-April. We are preparing tax returns at libraries and senior centers this year, and welcome clients of all ages and income level unless your return is outside the scope of our training. All our volunteers are IRS certified.

To protect the health and safety of our volunteers and taxpayers, we accept taxpayers by appointment only and allow limited face-to-face contact of 15 minutes per visit. Taxpayers visiting our sites will either drop off their tax documents or have them scanned. Taxpayers will leave the site while we prepare their return and come back later to review and pick up their completed tax return.

For your initial intake appointment:

Call our appointment line at 360-592-3489 starting January 17, 2022.

One of our volunteers will get back to you within 3 to 5 business days. Your caller ID will show (617)675-4444 when we call back. Please add this number to your phone contacts under Tax-Aide.
