Don’t Face the IRS Alone
Tax forms can be intimidating and not everyone has the cash to hire an accountant. Enter the free Tax Preparation Assistance program at the Sonoma Valley Regional Library in Sonoma. It may be sponsored by the AARP, but there is no age requirement for using the service. Volunteers will be available to help prepare taxes on Tuesday and Fridays, 10 a.m.–2 p.m., February 4–April 14. There will be no sessions on February 18 and 21; and sessions close at 1 p.m. on February 11 and March 10. Assistance is by-appointment only; schedule a time at sonomacounty.libcal.com/event/6308398. Participants are directed to bring a photo ID, 2018 state and federal tax returns, proof of Social Security or Individual Tax Payer Identification number and 2019 tax documents, including all income and deduction information, to their appointments.
