Tax Preparation Help

Hudson Public Library carries several Federal and Massachusetts State Income Tax forms and publications. Other tax forms may be searched online and printed at the library.

Please note: For legal reasons, the library staff are not able to answer specific tax questions; please consult your tax preparer for questions about your tax filing.

If you plan on filing electronically: You may use the library’s public computer stations for online tax preparation. However, the security and privacy of your information cannot be guaranteed, and it is always a possibility that technical issues beyond the library’s control may interrupt or otherwise cause problems with the process. More importantly, the library cannot guarantee that you will have adequate time to finish your work, and some tax websites do NOT allow you to save your progress.

Both the IRS and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue are strongly encouraging obtaining tax forms online and are thus sending fewer hard copies to the Library.

All forms and instructions may be printed from the library’s Internet computers. Printing forms from online and/or copying from the publication of Reproducible Copies of Federal Tax Forms and Instructions costs 20 cents ($0.20) per page.

Earned Income Tax Credit
The Earned Income Tax Credit, EITC or EIC, is a benefit for working people with low to moderate income. To qualify, you must meet certain requirements and file a tax return, even if you do not owe any tax or are not required to file. EITC reduces the amount of tax you owe and may give you a refund.
