The Edwardsville Public Library is offering free tax help in four upcoming sessions.

The library will host volunteer tax assistance on Feb. 24, as well as March 3, 10 and 17. Assistance is offered by appointment only, which can be made by calling 618-692-7556.

Other sites offering tax assistance can be found on the IRS website. Taxpayers are encouraged to call ahead and confirm hours at locations. You can also get advice by calling the IRS or online.

Remember to bring important tax-related documents like the previous year’s tax return, social security cards, photo identification for each taxpayer, W-2s and more, to complete your taxes.

Officials warned taxpayers earlier this year that scammers are notorious during tax season and said there are very few circumstances in which the IRS will call or come to a home or business, and even then, such a visit would be preceded by several notices via mail.
