Urbandale Public Library/Income Tax Resources

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

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is offered in cooperation with the IRS. The Urbandale Public Library is one of the five Tax-Aide locations in the Des Moines metro area. Assistance is available by appointment only. If you include an email in your reservation, you will receive a confirmation email with a list of what documents (W2s, 1099s, photo ID, etc.) to bring to your appointment. Please fill out an intake form and bring it to your appointment. You can print off the intake form here or pick up a form at the UPL tax prep room a few days prior to your appointment to fill out at home.
