Dollars & Sense @ Your Library

Lately it’s been all about the money, especially down in the Nation’s Pocketbook err… Capital. Do we spend, spend, spend or do we cut, cut, cut? For many individuals, the answer seems to be save, save, save. But, what do you do with the money you’re saving? Put it in a bank? Invest it in stocks or mutual funds? Just stuff it under the mattress? MCPL can help you answer these and other financial questions with an array of online and offline resources.

For online money saving tips, check out our LibGuide at http://montgomerycountymd.libguides.com/investing.  There, you'll find an array of resources from Value Line to Financial Literacy Now to the Motley Fool.  For information on the continuing financial crisis, visit http://montgomerycountymd.libguides.com/financialcrisis.

Meanwhile, Uncle Sam and his state-level counterparts are already getting ready to collect the money that will be spent (or not) in the next fiscal year. We were just reminded last week to get in our orders to the IRS so that we’ll have plenty of tax forms available for the masses come January. Don’t expect to find State of Maryland tax forms at the library though. Maryland is phasing out paper forms starting with this upcoming tax year. Paper forms will be made available by request only (while supplies last). To request yours, you’ll need to send an e-mail to taxforms@comp.state.md.us or to call 1-800-MD-TAXES between 8:00am and 5:00pm Monday – Friday to have them sent to you. I’d still try out the electronic forms though because after this tax year, paper tax forms will no longer be available at all.

Here's to more profitable times ahead!
