Urbandale Public Library/Income Tax Resources

We’ve compiled a variety of resources to help you prepare for tax season!

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

In past years, AARP Tax-Aide has used the Urbandale Public Library as a location for their tax preparation services. AARP Tax-Aide will not be at the library this year.

Instead, they are providing in-person tax preparation services by appointment only at Franklin Junior High (4801 Franklin Ave, Des Moines).

To set up an appointment at their Franklin Junior High location, call 515-992-6123. Please leave your name and call-back information so that an AARP tax-aide volunteer can get back to you. If their voicemail box is full you will need to check back at a later time.

Please do not call the Urbandale Public Library; we are unable to provide tax assistance or take messages for the AARP Tax-Aide Foundation.
