Tax information at your library

Tax Season is here, and your hometown libraries are ready to help you find the resources you need to file your taxes. This year, taxes must be filed by Wednesday, April 15, 2015.

Each of the 11 PLS branches is equipped to help you locate, download, and print your federal or state tax forms. Library cardholders may file their taxes online from library computers, but library staff is not trained to answer tax-related questions or work in actual preparation of forms.

Please note:

  • Standard charges for printing or photocopying apply. Black and white prints or copies are $0.15 per page. Color prints or copies are $0.30 per page.
  • Hometown libraries are unable to install personal tax software onto library computers.

Use the following information to find Oklahoma and federal tax forms online and other tax assistance resources:

And guess who still doesn't have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?
