AARP was not able to find the staffing to provide the same level of tax help in the Stayton Library as they have the past few years.
The Stayton Library will remain a walk in location. Unfortunately, AARP expects that they will not be able to help everyone wanting to have their taxes done.
For other options: Follow this link for a list of the next closest sites within 20 miles. Some are by appointments, which are filling up fast, while others are walk in.
Thank you for your understanding
