Changes to Tax Forms at the Library

   Friday, December 17th, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

This year's tax season will be different from past years, due to cost-cutting measures at the IRS and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. These changes are:

  • The IRS is NOT sending paper forms or instructions to peoples' homes. You can request the IRS send forms to your house by calling 800-829-3676 after January 1st.
  • The state tax booklets this year will only include one copy of the forms - they will NOT include any instructions. The booklets WILL be send to peoples' homes

The library will have reference copies of forms and instructions for patrons to photocopy. Also, all of these forms and instructions will be available online. You can visit the websites below for reference or to print your own copies:

Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Revenue - Tax Forms

Internal Revenue Service - Tax Forms

The library will still have a (limited) supply, and we'll do our best to fill everyone's tax form needs.

We do plan on offering the AARP Tax-Aide Volunteer again this year, and will begin taking appointments in mid- to late-January. Please contact the Reference Desk with question, and we, try to help you find the resource you need - but remember, library staff is not qualified to offer tax advice.

Shutter Island, the Movie

   Monday, February 22nd, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Shutter Island movie posterAs you may have heard, Chelmsford's 2010 One Book selection, Shutter Island is being released as a movie this month. We're hoping that many people will see it, in addition to reading the book.

The movie opened Friday, Feb 19th, and has been getting good reviews. If you haven't seen it yet, how about seeing it with the Library? Details are still being worked out, but we're hoping to have a "Chelmsford night" at a local cinema, so many of us who read the book can all watch the movie together.

More information about the movie:

In other movie news, the February and March Library Cinema Nights will be showing Dennis Lehane movies. February's showing was Mystic River, and the March 18th Cinema Night will be another of his books. Check the Cinema Night webpage or the Library's Calendar for more details.
