Tax season is here, and the Ferguson Library is hosting a tax counseling service provided by the American Association of Retired People.
Trained tax counselors from AARP Tax-Aide will give free tax counseling to low and middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those age 60 and older.
The library's Director of User Services, Alice Knapp, says the tax counseling sessions are one-on-one and "totally confidential."
"You can come in and they will help you with filling out the tax form. Even helping you submit it electronically," said Alice Knapp, director of user services.
Those interested in the program should bring all 2013 tax documents, including social security cards or other official documentation, and a copy of 2012 tax returns.
The program will run now through April 15, except Presidents' Day. The schedule is as follows:
Harry Bennett Conference Room
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Weed Memorial and Hollander Branch
Tuesdays, 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
