Free tax prep offered at library

JACKSON, Wyo. — Don’t kill the messenger, but tax returns will be due before you know it. It’s never to early to get a head start. Especially if you’d like a little free help, think about heading to the library.

That’s right, save yourself money and frustration by taking advantage of the IRS program Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA). VITA is offered at the Teton County Library, providing free income tax preparation service to the community.

VITA volunteer tax experts will prepare your taxes for free at the library from January 28 through April 11.

Here’s how and when:

In-Person: Wednesdays, 3–7 p.m., in the library’s Ordway Auditorium. This service covers federal income taxes (including self-employment income), tax credit eligibility and electronic filing. This service is offered first-come, first-served. Spanish interpreters are available. Last day: April 8.

Drop Off: Drop off all your required paperwork, consult with an IRS-certified volunteer, then later come back to review and sign. Tuesdays, Jan. 28 – Apr. 7, 4–7 p.m., and Saturdays, Feb. 1 – Apr. 11, 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. No appointment necessary.

Self-service with help: Prepare your own taxes using the MyFreeTaxes online service, and stop in to ask questions or review with a volunteer before filing, during any of the Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday tax preparation sessions.

Check income guidelines and a list of what documents you need to bring.
