Home Life Library: Get your free electronic tax forms

Library: Get your free electronic tax forms

Once again, it is time to settle up with Uncle Sam.  Tax Season is about to kick into high gear and AARP Tax Service is ready to help.  Beginning Monday, February 2, trained volunteers will prepare electronic tax forms for free at the Bossier Central Library.  The hours of operation will be 9a.m.—2p.m. Monday through Friday until April 15. 

The doors to the library will open at 9a.m.   Be prepared to wait in line because many people arrive early.  Patrons will be taken on a first come first serve basis.  Please bring a photo ID and all pertinent tax information. 

VickieHardin copyAlthough the tax preparers will be using the conference room at the Central Library, library employees are not allowed to offer tax information and advice. 

For those preparing their own taxes, Tax Forms and Publications are available online at www.IRS.gov.   Patrons with a library card may sign up to use a computer to print tax forms.
