Tax Assistance Resources

As tax season is approaching, here are some helpful resources: 

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit offer opportunities for families to receive federal funds, even if they do not earn enough income to pay taxes.

  • Millions of workers qualify for these credits for the first time this year, making awareness critical. Workers move into and out of eligibility based on changes in their marital, parental and financial status.
  • The easiest way for families to receive these funds is to file a tax return.


AARP Tax Aide will not be at the Stayton Library this year. They will have three sites open by appointment in Salem and Keizer. Here is where they will be:  

Center 50+ Appointments can be made  Mon - Fri 9:00 - 12:00  by calling (503) 588-6303
