April 15th is coming up!

Believe it or not, we have already had people asking us when we will have the IRS forms out on display. How conscientious is that? Ordinarily, we put the forms out at the beginning of the year when the Christmas tree in the lobby gets taken down. Due to the wacky weather, tho, it will be a little longer before the Ketchikan Garden Club is able to come in and take off all the beautiful hand-made ornaments that they used to decorate the tree (if you haven't been in to look at it, you really should pop by before it's gone).
In the interim, however, we have two things to offer you:
1. All the IRS forms are available on their website - - and we would be happy to print them off for you (our charge for printing is .10¢ a page)
2. We have the new J.K. Lasser's Your Income Tax 2009. The advantage of looking at this book now (as opposed to April 14th) is that you have plenty of time to look at the new rules, your various options for tax deductions and hints for filing. Also, if you get a jump on your taxes now you don't have to worry about this book being checked out when you need it.
So until the tree comes down and the forms go out, we will do our best to assist you with your tax needs and commiserate about your tax bill.
