The Alpine Branch Library will be offering a tax help program this year.
“The tax program is offered by a group of volunteers certified by the IRS who prepare tax returns for folks with modest income,” said Wendi Walton, librarian. “There are three options, for those who meet the income eligibility guidelines, to have their taxes filed for free.”
The “Meet With a Trained Volunteer” program allows area residents to meet and discuss taxes with an expert, Walton said. “Make an appointment to meet with a trained volunteer,” she said. “You will work together to complete and file your taxes that day.”
Appointments are available on Jan. 25, Feb. 8, Feb. 15 and March 8.
The “Drop Off Service” program allows area residents to have their taxes completed by a volunteer.
“Drop off your tax documents anytime before March 1 and our volunteers will prepare your tax return,” Walton said. “Then pick up, review, and sign your completed tax return at the Alpine Library by appointment.”
There is also a “Do it Yourself” option, Walton said.
“Use the IRS free software and our computers to complete your taxes yourself,” she said. “A help line for questions will be available on a limited basis.”
