Tax Forms At Library; Free Tax Assistance At University of Scranton

The library is slowly but surely getting free tax forms that were delayed due to the "financial cliff crisis."  Forms are presently available in the main floor lobby of the library and will be moved to the Reference Department in the coming weeks.   

In addition, accounting students from the University of Scranton and volunteers from the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties will be providing free tax assistance to individuals and families whose household income is less than $49,000 a year.

The program kicks off Sunday, Feb. 3, at the university by appointment only. Walk-ins at the campus will be available from Tuesday, Feb. 5, to Wednesday, Mar. 20, and from Tuesday, April 2, to Friday, Apr. 5.
To make an appointment for Feb. 3, call 504-0614. 

Assistance will also be provided at seven other locations in the region, by appointment, beginning in early February. The full schedule can be seen at www.uwic.comhttp://www.uwlc.net/GetHelp/VITA_Calendar.htm.

Don't forget the deadline for filing Federal Income Tax is midnight on Monday, April 15th, 2013.
