Tick, tick, tick...April 15 is fast approaching and our number one question on the 2nd Floor is, "Tax forms?" Right behind that is, "Do you have extension forms?" The answer, of course, is yes! All tax forms, including state and federal extensions, are available in our Collaborative Reference Area on the 2nd Floor. We're here to help you beat the deadline!
Did you know that the very first form of income tax was implemented in 1862, to support efforts during the Civil War? Our modern system was established almost 100 years ago, in 1913. Today, the government collects over $1 billion in taxes annually from over 300 million Americans. What does all this money buy? Highways and bridges, environmental research, consumer protections, border security, scientific and medical researh, defense here and abroad, police services, and education funding, among many other benefits.
