No matter what you might think about the IRS, as government agencies go, they are great at disseminating information. If you want to know how the Stimulus package, aka the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, will affect your tax bill or paycheck, the IRS website has a great page with easy-to-understand summaries and links to more information. For example, if you're expecting a check, click on the Economic Recovery Payment link and see if you qualify.
And as long as we're discussing the IRS, it's tax time! The Main Library now has NM tax forms, and you can check out the library's Tax Information page to find out where you can get federal tax forms and assistance.
