Beginning Monday, Feb. 2, through Monday, April 13, free income tax preparation and e-mail filing will be provided Mondays and Saturdays at the Guilderland Public Library by the all-volunteer AARP Tax Aide program. Volunteers are trained and certified in cooperation with the IRS, and prepare personal federal and New York State  income tax returns for taxpayers of all ages with low and moderate incomes. Appointments are necessary; a separate appointment is required for each taxpayer. Bring a copy of last year’s return, social security cards, photo ID, all 2014 W-2’s, 1099 statements, sold investments with purchase dates and cost basis, and supporting documents if itemizing deductions.  Also, if these apply, bring supporting documents for any gambling winnings, medical insurance coverage, payments for any child care, payments for education, contributions to an IRA, and estimated tax payments you made during 2014.  Bring your checkbook if you want a direct deposit of your refund.  Tax Aide volunteers can’t do estate or partnership returns, returns with rental income or returns requiring Schedule C (business returns with a net loss, inventory, employees, or expenses over $10,000.)  Both taxpayers must be present if filing a joint return, except in case of illness or infirmity. For appointments call 211.

HEAP program

This grant can be received each heating season and goes directly to the heating company. The amount of the payment to each person is determined by income, living expenses, and type of fuel used. Applications are available in the senior office, and if you need assistance, please call to set up an appointment.

GHS spring musical

The Guilderland Players’ next musical will be “42nd Street.” Senior Citizen Night will be Thursday, March 10, at 7 p.m., and tickets will be available at a cost of $5 each (cash only), in the senior office in late February. Call ahead to check on ticket availability at 356-1980.

“42nd Street” tells the story of a humble, naïve young actress named Peggy Sawyer who has come to audition for a new Broadway musical. Unfortunately, due to her nervousness, Peggy arrives to the audition late and misses her chance to join the chorus. Luckily, Peggy soon catches the eye of the director, Julian Marsh, and he gives Peggy her big break. However, the show's aging lead lady, Dorothy Brock, quickly grows to dislike Peggy. Transportation service will be provided to this event.
