The tax preparation services will be available Thursday and Friday, March 16 and 17, from 9 AM to 5 PM at the NPL Main Branch. This service is offered to all seniors and college students, regardless of their income or background, and will be provided by the certified tax professionals of Community Tax Services, of Baton Rouge.
