Monday Is Tax Day: Have You Filed Yet?

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.

You can also e-file for free, regardless of income, through IRS free-file. Other e-file options, like TaxSlayer, TurboTax, or H&R Block, will guide you through the process but will cost you.

Of course, you can always leave it in the hands of the professionals. Calls to Colacino and Victoria Brush reveal that both are booked through Monday, but appointments are available at:

436 Fourth Avenue between 8th & 9th Streets

If you are filing by yourself, keep in mind that the last collection at both local post offices (275 9th Street & 198 7th Avenue) is 5 p.m.
