The start of a new year means it is time to think about doing taxes. The Frankfort Community Public Library can be an excellent resource for those in need of a little help. We have tax books available for checkout in the non-fiction collection located on the lower level of the library. We also have state tax forms available next to the computer lab. Federal forms have been ordered, but have not arrived yet. Until then, patrons can print out up to ten pages worth of federal tax forms for free at the Reference Desk. Staff cannot help with filling out the forms, but we can direct you to additional resources.
For those looking to file online and have an adjusted gross income of less than $69,000, additional help can be found on the IRS website https://apps.irs.gov/app/freeFile/. This portal connects users to free online services that will walk them through the tax filing process.
AARP Foundation Tax-Aide offers free, in person, tax preparation to low-to-moderate-income tax-payers. This service is mainly targeted at those who are over 50 years of age. There will be two service locations in Clinton County through this program. The Frankfort Neighborhood Center will offer tax help on Thursdays from February 6 to April 9 between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM. No appointment is needed. Wesley Manor will be offering tax help on Wednesdays from February 5 to March 25. Help at the Manor is by appointment only. For more information call (765) 656-2111. Days and hours are subject to change. You will need to bring your tax documents, such as a W-2, with you.
