Tax Season is Here!

Tax season is upon us, and the Athens Regional Library System wants to help. Visit our Tax Information page for links to online resources, information about where to find free tax preparation assistance in the area, and more.

The libraries in the regional system will have a limited number of Federal Tax Forms for patrons to pick up but, due to budget cuts by the IRS, we will not have any instruction books. This includes instructions for Forms 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ.

Residents can request a personal copy of instructions or forms:

Go online to IRS.gov/forms - to view and download OR
IRS.gov/orderforms - to order tax products to be delivered by U.S. mail OR
call 1-800-829-3676 - to order tax products to be delivered by U.S. mail.

We're registering teens ages 11-18 for the Hunger Games Live Action Roleplaying Game on Friday, March 16th at 7:00 p.m. There won't be any actual physical combat (combat will be determined bya roll of the dice), but you'll have to use your own wits and your abiltiy to sneak to win. The games are limited to 24 teens, first-come-first-served. You MUST be preregistered to participate and registartion ends on March 14th. No exceptions. Call us if you have any questions or want to register: 7-6-613-3650 ext 329.

PS: We could use some volunteers to help pull this event off, so if you want to be involved, but don't want to compete let us know. Adults are also welcome to volunteer to be gamemakers or to film the action (it's not the Games if it can't be televised, right?) We'll just need you to fill out a volunteer application for the library.
