It’s Tax Time Again

2013 state and federal income taxes are due April 15, 2014 and the
library can make your tax experience a little bit easier. Tax forms are
available at many libraries. Check with your local library
to see if they have the form you need. Both New York State and Federal
forms and instructions are available online (see below). The  Business & Social Sciences Division of
the Central Library also has Federal and New York State tax forms and
instructions for prior years. Some of these are in a reproducible format
and can be photocopied. Many tax forms for other states can be found online. Click here for more information.

Crime Statistics

Do  you need statistics on crime locally. Take a look at the following website:

“It’s based on a massive database of crime reports filed by the Rochester Police Department since January 1, 2008.  The information is provided by the RPD and is updated daily.  People “can select a date range or choose a type of crime to narrow the search.  People can get an overview of what is going on in their neighborhood.  People can zero in to what’s happened at a specific address, or look up the basic details of a specific incident.  The database that powers the map includes reports for incidents categorized as “Part I Crimes” under the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) guidelines.  This includes homicide, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny and motor vehicle theft”.
