It’s Tax Day: here’s what you need to do

April 15 is one of America's most dreaded non-holidays. Here's the rundown for what you need to do to get your taxes squared away.

Picking up tax forms: You can print off tax forms from the Internal Revenue Service's website here. If you don't have access to a printer, the Boise Public Library can help you out by copying tax forms at 10 cents a page. You can also pick them up from the Boise IRS office at 550 West Fort Street.

Tax help: The Boise Public Library is offering free tax assistance from 1-4 p.m. Wednesday for anyone who makes up to $58,000. For online help, tax filers who make less than $60,000 can use myfreetaxes.com for free. (People with income higher than that can use the website, but fees apply.) IRS offices also offer help. And, the Idaho State Tax Commission has a variety of resources on its site, including options for filing your taxes online if you’re within a certain income range.

Filing: As long as you have your taxes postmarked by April 15, you're good to go. Check here to find United States Postal Offices that have extended hours for sending off your taxes.
