It's hard to tell by looking out the window, but the calendar tells us that spring is on the way. Yes. Yes, that's right. In the near future we can look forward to sunshine, birdsong and cherry blossoms. The other imminent arrival that's more believable is April 15. Yes, your taxes are due, too. Lest this annual chore spoil your seasonal optimism, we at the Naperville Public Library are here to ease the process.
Come visit any NPL location for hard copies of basic tax forms, and consult our tax information page for helpful links – including the nearest locations of personal tax assistance. On Saturday March 23, the Nichols Library will have volunteers to assist taxpayers from low-income households, or workers who earn less than $49,000 per year. For the rest of you, you can get help at Loaves & Fishes and the Riverwalk Community Center as late as mid-April.
Some new developments this year to keep in mind:
- Illinois 1040 instruction booklets were distributed in small numbers and have run out;
- Federal 1040 forms and instruction booklets are still available;
- The Circuit Breaker (Benefit Access Application) is no longer being distributed;
- Only Nichols Library has Reproducible Tax Forms.
If you still have further questions, feel free to stop at any Adult Services desk, or call Nichols Adult Services at (630) 637-6311. We’re not H&R Block, but we can get you started and then back to the spring vigil!
