CCPL providing free tax preparation companies at a number of library branches

CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) is prepared to help you with your taxes this year with free tax assistance being offered at several library locations throughout February, March, and April.

CCPL has partnered with AARP, SC Thrive, and the IRS’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) to provide tax preparation assistance, free of charge, at 10 CCPL branches.

“Tax preparation can be challenging and stressful, and many people can’t afford to pay for professional help,” said Karli Gallagher, CCPL’s Adult System Coordinator. “By working with these partner organizations, we’re excited to be able to offer patrons safe, convenient, and, most importantly, free assistance at many of our libraries throughout the County.”
