On Friday, April 15, 2016, your federal and state taxes for 2015 will be due. Will you be ready?
As in prior years, the Library and the Senior Center will partner with AARP Tax Aide to provide tax assistance. Call the Library, 805-237-3870, beginning January 19, to sign up for Saturday tax preparation appointments at the Library beginning February 6. Call the Senior Center, 237-3880, beginning January 19, to sign up for Tuesday appointments at the Veterans' Building (next to the Senior Center) beginning February 3, and Thursday appointments beginning February 5.
You do not need to be a senior to use the service provided at the Library or the Senior Center. The AARP Tax Aide program is for most taxpayers (certain exceptions do apply) who would like assistance in preparing their tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation to taxpayers, assisting with various tax credits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and Education Credits.
Join us at the Library as we celebrate this annual nationwide event to encourage parents and caregivers to bring children to the Library on a regular basis.
