Information about Changes in the Tax Law

Bernardsville Public Library will host the second CARES program on Thursday, May 26 at 10:30 am in the library’s Community Room: Corsetta Wilson, tax specialist with the Internal Revenue Service, will give an overview of changes in the 2011 tax law. She will also address the Earned Income Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, and various other tax credits, correct withholding of taxes from pay and payment options if you owe money. Finally, she will highlight the tax help offered by VITA volunteers at the library year-around.

CARES, which stands for Community Assistance Resource and Educational Services, is a locally administered umbrella program that delivers informational sessions pertaining to local, county, state and federal programs. Its objective is to inform and educate local residents and support the goal of healthy, fulfilling and happy lifestyles. All CARES events will be presented by subject matter experts who will be able to answer all questions pertaining to their topics. Other sessions in development are: Understanding The Affordable Care Act, Important Recordkeeping, and Medicare Open Enrollment (in the fall).

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
