Find It Friday - Tax Information

This month is one that causes many people great stress and headache. It's Tax Month, of course. Normally, federal tax returns are due no later than April 15th. However, this year, since April 15th is a Sunday, and April 16th is Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in the District of Columbia, the filing deadline is extended to Midnight of April 17th. Still, sooner begun, sooner done, sooner outside having fun - just because we have two extra days to file it doesn't really mean we should wait for the last minute.

Now, library staff is absolutely NOT allowed to give tax advice, by law, so we are not allowed to tell you what forms you might need, or help you fill them out. The most we can do is help you find any forms or publications you might need, offer access to books on the topic we have in the collection, and hope it all adds up to a refund for you.

The library has some forms on hand, though the IRS has not sent out nearly as many this year as it has in previous years. We may or may not have on hand the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ forms, as well as instruction booklets. We can't reserve some for you if you ask, so they may be gone before you get in here. However, we can help you download from the IRS website forms, instruction booklets, and other publications, and for our standard printing charges, print them out.

The IRS also has links to companies that may allow you to file your income tax return online for free!

Oh, and while you're working on your federal return, you might as well start on your Louisiana Income Tax return, if you're a Louisiana resident or have income from the state. Louisiana even goes one better than the IRS, by having its own free online filing service run by the State, and not separate companies, though you might prefer to use one of the companies from the IRS website if your tax situation is complicated. The Louisiana filing deadline is on Tuesday, May 15th this year.
