It's tax season, and the UAPL is here to make it as smooth as possible for everyone. While library staff cannot give out tax advice or answer specific tax questions, we are happy to direct patrons to tax information.
The Main (Tremont), Lane Road and Miller Park Libraries receive a limited number of the most-used tax forms for distribution to the public, which will be set out when they arrive. Library staff will be able to assist you in locating additional forms. UAPL patrons may also use the library's public computers to print tax forms and instructions at a cost of 10¢ per sheet.
The following are quick links to important information on the Internal Revenue Service's site (www.irs.gov)
