April 15 is just around the corner. If the thought of the paperwork makes you break into a cold sweat, don’t worry: you’re certainly not alone, and there are people who are ready to help.
If you’re doing it yourself, you can download forms online, or pick them up at the info desk at the Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. As a free service to those who make less than $49,000, a tax assistant will also be available to answer questions tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 – 5 p.m., in room 216.
