Subject: IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP) Filing Season Update
While we had committed to waiting until next year to making changes to the Tax Forms Outlet Program, the situation has changed. As you may be aware, IRS appropriations were significantly cut in the 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill recently passed by Congress. Unfortunately this puts us in a position where we have very few options. We want to honor our commitment to you by providing some key products, but we cannot deliver nearly what we have in the past.

For this filing season, we will offer the following products:
• Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ
• Publication 17, one reference copy for each participant (Taxpayers will be able to access Publication 17 in English and Spanish online from irs.gov/Pub17 and, new this year, it will also be available as a free e-Pub for downloading from IRS.gov and viewing on most e-Readers and other mobile devices.)
• Publication 4604 (EN/SP), Use the Web for IRS Tax Products & Information
• Publication 1132, Reproducible Copies of Federal Tax Forms and Instructions
• The TFOP Poster Package which includes:
o Publication 1169, Need Tax Help?
o Publication 1258, Where Should I Send This?
o Publication 1309, Tax Forms This Way Publication
o Publication 1725, If The Form Fits…Use It!

No additional products will be available through the TFOP Program. We will not be sending Form 8635-S, Supplement to Form 8635.

We will fill orders for Forms 1040 and 1040A with the quantities you requested on your order form earlier this year. Because Form 1040EZ was not on this year’s order form, we will send you 75% of your Form 1040 A order quantity. For example, if you ordered 3000 Form 1040 A, we will send you 2250 Form 1040EZ. It is not necessary for you to place an order for Form 1040EZ; we will automatically ship Form 1040EZ to you once the form becomes available.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Instructions for Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ. Your patrons can obtain copies of Instructions through:
• IRS.gov/Forms – to view and download
• IRS.gov/orderforms – to order tax products to be delivered by mail
• 1-800-829-3676 – to order tax products to be delivered by mail
The decision to reduce the number of tax products available to our TFOP partners was not made lightly. We realize this decision is not ideal and we understand it may impact you and your customers. Please offer Publication 4604 (EN/SP) to your patrons to help guide them to tax products and information available on IRS.gov. We apologize for these late program changes.

Winter Photography at the Library

Posted by rgames on December 11th, 2014

Dona Guillo continues her exhibit this month at the library with photography depicting winter scenes.

The Dance of Light by Dona Guillo This month’s Art Show is about Light and how it can create and illustrate a depth of Beauty through the prism of Nature—Water, Earth and Sky.  Water captures the Light as it dances through the trees and bounces off the rocks in a flowing woodland stream, lake or pond creating a pastel watercolors,.  The Earth receives the Sun and illuminates the forest floor scattering beams of light among the delicate flora and fauna caressing them in a golden embrace. The Sky reflects the luminous brilliance of a setting Sun and gives us pause in our business while serving up a Light Show of Awesomeness….Embraced the Light!

Dona is originally from Wading River, Long Island NY and has been a resident of Hadley for many years. She has been taking pictures since she was 12yrs old. Her love of the natural world inspires her photography. People tell her, “You’ve got a good eye’ but in truth she tells them “I see with my heart”. Her Photo library is filled with images of God’s Creation- flowers, forests, landscapes, lakes and much, much more! Her favorite mediums are abstracts and macro photography. Dona’s Photo Art is a reflection of her imagination brought to life as captured in the lens of her camera. These images are then digitally enhanced in order to highlight the beauty that surrounds us. She is not interested in awards or accolades but her heart’s desire is to create beauty, by expressing truth, as a labor of love by offering her art for all to enjoy. Check out her new website

Thursday Book Club

Posted by rgames on October 2nd, 2014

book 1book
On October 9th the book club will meet from 4-5pm in our Community Room to discuss this month’s book club selection “Galileo’s Daughter; A Historical Memoir of Science, Faith and Love.” There are always great discussions at the Book Club and all are welcome.
Next month’s selection is “In Sunlight and Shadow” by Mark Helprin. Mark Helprin writes “In Sunlight and In Shadow, takes place not in a world I had to seek but one – New York in the 40s – into which I was born. The density and accuracy of the images, the onrush of memory, the stunning recollections of sound, speech, song, dress, all came easily. The people in In Sunlight and In Shadow are, with great poetic liberty, people I knew and/or loved – even the gangsters, the financiers, the actresses, intellectuals, soldiers, and factory workers.”
Call to reserve a copy and join the discussion! 696-3423

Monthly Artist for October- Gary Larson

Posted by rgames on October 2nd, 2014

Day LiliesEmbrace (18")

I was born in Connecticut and, after completing my degree at the University of Connecticut, I travelled extensively throughout the United States and lived in 12 different states. As my first career advanced, I became increasingly committed to photography. I now live in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, where I photograph often. But I still travel throughout the U.S. frequently and into Canada occasionally. I have been deeply interested in photography for over 30 years and now photograph in 35 mm digital format. I have taken classes and workshops with well-known photographers George Lepp, John Shaw, Weldon Lee and B. Moose Peterson.

While my subjects are drawn from nature and focus on landscapes, structures and flowers, I also find close-up photography to be exciting. For several years, I have been especially drawn to infrared digital photography. I find that its unusual light spectrum challenges human perceptions, and it has opened fresh creative channels for my work.

My work was selected for the “New Genre” award in the 2012 “Cooperstown National Show.” I have had several photographs selected for the “Adirondack Life Photography Contest,” winning 1st Place Color Photograph in 2008, 2nd Place Alternative Process in 2009 (and another for Honorable Mention) and an Honorable Mention in 2010. One of my photographs was selected as “The Best of Nikonians” in their on-line contest for May 2010, leading to an article about infrared photography for their on-line magazine. I have had photographs in the 2011, 2013 and 2014 “Exhibitions by Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region” at the Albany Institute of History & Art and at the Hyde Museum. I have had photographs selected for the “Cooperstown Art Association’s Annual Regional & National Juried Exhibitions.” In 2009, my photograph won the 2nd Place award at the “Adirondack Theme Biennial Photography Exhibition” at the (then) Arts Center in Old Forge, NY. This year, I won a 3rd place award at View Arts Center in the “Annual Central Adirondack Regional Exhibition.”

My photographs have been presented in solo shows at the Arkell Museum in Canajoharie, NY; the Clifton Park/Halfmoon Public Library in Clifton Park, NY; the (former) Feast Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY; the bjsartworks Gallery in Glens Falls, NY; the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts in Blue Mountain Lake, NY and in the Northville Public Library in Northville, NY. I had solos shows in Hadley-Luzerne, Glens Falls, Albany, Blue Mountain Lake, and Clifton Park, NY in the last two years.

I recently published my second book called “Paths… Over Roots & Rocks.” This hardcover book contains 38 images and greatly expands my work on paths. The first book was based on my “Paths in Life” series of infrared photographs. It contains 18 images along with the definitions and narratives included with these photographs. Each “Path” image reflects a human value. The series of images was gathered as I traveled throughout the U.S.

I also maintain both a website at: www.lighteffectphoto.com and a Facebook business page at:
