Get Through Tax Season with the Library

Clearview Library District Adult Programs, Events


From when you get your W-2 in January through the April 15 Internal Revenue Service deadline, tax season can be a stressful time.

The Clearview Library District offers several resources to help support you as you file your taxes.

Technology Access

Last fall, we upgraded the internet connection at the Windsor-Severance Library. We now offer 1 gigabit-per-second internet connection speeds, 10 times faster than our previous capacity. Access IRS resources, download tax forms or file electronically from the solitude of our Quiet Space, which is equipped with plenty of outlets around workspaces and comfy chairs. Bonus: Our WiFi reaches the parking lot, if you’re crunching numbers after hours.

Need a computer or printer? You can use one of our desktop workstations or check out a laptop. With your library card, you’re able to print from any device in the library up to $2 in free printing per day ($0.10 per page for black and white and $1 per color page).

Reference Materials

Our catalog has many helpful resources on tax preparation, tax philosophy, and business taxes. Additionally, the Gale Small Business Resource Center — a comprehensive database covering all aspects of starting and operating a business — includes tax information for small businesses.

Free Tax Preparation

Each Monday through April 15, we’re offering free tax preparation assistance from 4-7 p.m. This service is provided by the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, a national program between the Internal Revenue Service and nonprofit organizations. Assistance is provided free of charge to community members with less than $60,000 in income or who are over 60 years old.

Please note: library staff members do not provide tax preparation assistance or advice. Always refer to the Internal Revenue Service for more information and for questions.
