UPDATE (3/15/20): Due to concerns over the potential spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Ohio County Public Library is closed until further notice, effective Sunday, March 15, 2020.
NOTE: On March 20, 2020, the IRS officially extended the federal income tax filing deadline from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020. The State of West Virginia has also extended the state income tax filing deadline from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
Free tax help is available at the Ohio County Public Library through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program.
