Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Find tax help at your local library

Lucinda deLorimier
Special to the Sun

Remember your local library when you are puzzling over your tax returns: We have books and electronic resources to help with many aspects of tax laws and legislation.

Whether you're looking for information on small business taxation, the landlord's guide to tax deductions, tax awareness for retirement plans, tax guides for professionals, or handling deductions and tax breaks, you'll find reliable resources at your library. Feel free to search our catalogs online from home, or ask us when you are at the library.

The Truckee Library has several basic tax forms and instruction booklets, and the Kings Beach Library has 1040 and 1040EZ forms available for free, and of course you may use public computers to print forms and consult both Federal and State websites for information.

As well, if you know which form you need, libraries will help you to print them. Visit us today to discover ways to make tax return season smoother.
