Tax Season

This tax season has brought about heightened anxiety for many tax filers that have had to wait for tax form changes. The good news is that the deadline to file tax returns has been extended to April 18, 2011. The IRS needed time to implement changes when President Obama signed the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Act into law back in December. You can read more about the act here.

We finally received the following forms and booklets yesterday:
  • 1040
  • 1040A
  • 1040EZ
Find and print other forms at, or stop in the library and ask someone to print the forms out for you, free of charge (limit 10 copies).

  • A list of free tax help locations provided by AARP and VITA have been compiled by our Government Documents Departments. View them here.
