2021 Tax Information

For AARP Tax Assistance, please contact the Reference Desk at (203) 452-2852.  Our Reference Librarian will take your information and a member of AARP will get back to you.  AARP assistance will not be held at the library this year.  The library has federal 1040 and 1040-SR forms and booklets available in our front foyer. We will NOT be receiving any CT-1040 forms this year. To print your own CT-1040 forms, please visit the CT DRS portal. 

To visit the Federal IRS website, visit www.irs.gov/.  Forms and instructions, including those in non-English languages, are available in their forms portal: https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions

You may qualify for free online services from VITA.  Visit VITA’s 2-1-1 page   for additional information. BASIC ELIGIBILITY FOR VITA: The VITA program is for households who generally make $57,000 or less, persons with disabilities and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. Also, individuals who are self-employed should have business expenses less than $25,000, and individuals should not have income from a rental property.  Assistance from VITA also requires certain documentation.

If you would like to file your own taxes for free electronically, the State of CT recommends Free File or My Free Taxes.
