Need a little free help in getting those tax returns prepared?
West Virginians earning $49,000 or less can get them done by the State Law Library, in conjunction with the Central West Virginia Earned Income Tax Credit Coalition.
One-on-one tax preparation assistance and e-filing of documents are being offered by certified volunteer staff members.
