Income tax assistance at the library begins this Thursday, February 3. Representatives from AARP will be on hand to assist you in filling out your federal income tax forms and e-filing them for you. Appointments are being taken, and walk-ins will be worked in as possible. Call the library at 968-3239 for an appointment. The library also is the location to pick up any tax forms you may need. We are still waiting on the 1040 instruction books, but we expect them any day.
