Free tax help is available to Wisconsin residents at the Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave., through the TaxAide program. Certified, experienced volunteers will be preparing personal taxes from noon to 4 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday, Feb. 7 through April 9.
Taxpayers can sign up for the free filing help from 10 a.m. to noon Monday, Feb. 4; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5; and Thursday, Feb. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon at the library. They can also sign up during regular tax preparation hours.
The TaxAide program, which is supported by AARP, can prepare federal and Wisconsin taxes, Wisconsin homesteads and Minnesota income for Wisconsin residents. All taxes are electronically filed. There is no income or age limit.
TaxAide can not file returns for Minnesota residents, taxpayers who are married filing separately or military returns.
Local TaxAide coordinator Nancy Carriar said that library personnel cannot answer tax questions or sign up taxpayers for the free preparation services. People should sign up for the tax help in advance.
TaxAide has been providing free tax preparation for years at the library. It relocated to the Salvation Army during last year's library remodel project, but has returned.
