Free Tax Help

**April 1 Update: All Library appointments are full**

Need help with your taxes? AARP Tax-Aide volunteers are available to help residents file their federal and Indiana state tax returns! The AARP Foundation Tax-aide Program provides in-person and virtual tax assistance to anyone, free of charge. Volunteers are trained and IRS-certified every year.


Virtual Appointments

The Downtown Library is a virtual tax preparation site. Two-visit same-day drop off or two-visit scan options are available February 1–April 12 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays from 2–6 PM. To schedule an appointment and get more information, please call 812-727-4836 or email MCPLtaxaide [at] You can expect to leave a message with your contact information and a volunteer will contact you to schedule an appointment.

The Ellettsville Branch is an in-person tax preparation site. Appointments are available January 31–April 13 on Mondays from 10 AM–1 PM and Wednesdays from 2–5 PM.


Additional Community Locations

In addition to our Library locations, free community tax service is available at five additional on-site locations in Monroe and Brown Counties. View all locations.


Preparing for Your Appointment

Tax Forms

Basic federal tax forms are available at the Downtown Library and Ellettsville Branch while supplies last. Looking for a different tax form? We can print it by request. We offer 30 cents worth of free printing per day for library card users (this is equivalent to three black and white pages or one color page). Additional black and white pages are available at 10 cents per copy and color pages at 30 cents per copy, payable at the printing stations.
