Volunteer Tax Preparation

Tax Preparation

To help file your 2023 tax return the New Canaan Library has again teamed up with SimplifyCT,  the same group of IRS-certified volunteers that have been preparing your taxes for years.

SimplifyCT is a nonprofit organization, partnered with the Internal Revenue Service(IRS) Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program and surrounding community organizations to offer FREE TAX FILING to taxpayers that earned $65,000 or less for 2023.

This year tax preparation is available in person at the New Canaan Library and online through SimplifyCT's website.
