Due to pandemic restrictions and for the safety of taxpayers and volunteers, the Library's free VITA income tax preparation is a socially distanced program this year.
If your income is under $66,000 and your taxes are not complex (for example, you do not have rental property, employees or inventory) you can pick up a packet that will help you submit the needed information to get your taxes done.
Pick up your packet at the Eureka Library. It will explain how to make a 15 minute appointment. (Masks are required and 6 foot distance will be maintained.) Your taxes will be eFiled as soon as the IRS is ready to accept them, and a copy of your return will be presented to you.
Packets will be available at the Eureka Main Library starting Saturday, January 23.
While the library building is closed, appointments will take place at the Faith Center, 1032 Bay Street, Eureka, CA 95501. For bus riders, it's walking distance from the Myrtle & Dean bus stop on the Purple Route. Please bring your mask.
They may try to take advantage of the pandemic or the Impact Payment. Do not believe a telephone caller who pretends to be the IRS and tries to frighten you into sending money or revealing personal information. Be wary of emails as well.
Due to last minute tax changes, the Library expects to have paper tax forms in mid-February. You may request them via Curbside Service. Use the button below or call your local library.
