Free tax help available at Corfu Free Library
On Tuesday, Feb. 16, a representative from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance will be at the Corfu Free Library from 2 to 8 p.m. to assist residents in learning how to file their income tax returns online for free. Anyone interested in signing up for this assistance should contact the library to schedule a time slot.
The Facilitated Self Assistance (FSA) program, coordinated by Assemblyman Steve Hawley, will be held at the Corfu Library, 7 Maple Ave., Corfu, will focus on showing how residents can file their taxes electronically.
According to Hawley, “Filing taxes electronically saves residents time and money and also yields a considerably quicker refund.”
This FSA assistance at the Corfu Free Library is free service for taxpayers. When residents come to the library for help completing their tax return, they’ve potentially saved hundreds of dollars in preparer fees, and can learn how to prepare them on their own next season.
In addition to the Feb. 16 date, this free tax help can be scheduled for other Tuesdays if needed. Patrons need to call the library sign up. Materials with everything needed to bring to an appointment in order to file online can be picked up at the library.
Residents are encouraged to call to schedule a timeslot. They can also learn more about e-filing online at www.tax.ny.gov. For more information about this program, call the Corfu Free Library at (585) 599-3321.
