Don't be uptight about filing your income tax. Representatives from AARP will be at the Stratford Library every Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. beginning February 1, 2011 through April 12 to help you file your taxes for free. Bring 2009 income tax papers and your 2010 papers you need for filing this year. This safe and secure way of receiving help will alleviate any worries you may have. Your taxes will be e-filed for you and you will receive a print-out copy of them.

This year the tax deadline is April 18th. If you choose to do them yourself, you may get the forms at the library. If you have computer/printer access at home, you may go to www.irs.govto print your forms. Or, of course, you may e-file on your own. If you have any questions about the free AARP income tax service at the library, please call 281-426-3521.
