Income Tax Information

Tax filing season begins January 29, 2018. 

2017 tax returns are due Tuesday, April 17, 2018.

The IRS has reduced the amount of printed tax forms and publications available to public libraries nationwide. As a result, a limited amount of printed tax materials will be available in our branches for our customers. 

Library staff can assist you in locating tax materials. We cannot, however, provide you with tax advice.
