- 1099-MISC from contract work performed

If you are due a refund, please bring routing number and account number for your bank
account so it can be directly deposited into that account. (not required but recommended;
you can find this information on a check from your personal bank account)
What to Expect
- At our site, someone will greet you and set you up on a computer. If there are no computers available when you come in you may use your laptop, if you have one. The greeter will make sure you are setup properly.
- We will not be doing your taxes for you, but have you do your taxes on an easy to follow H&R Block software. However, we will have certified volunteers there for any questions you may have while preparing your taxes.
- When you have completed your taxes, before you file them, be sure to have a volunteer do a quality review to ensure that major credits and deductions were not missed.
- After you have completed the process, we will have you save a copy of your tax return for your files. Also, we will ask you if you would like to fill out an optional survey to see what we can do better next year to assist you.

Tunnel Vision: A Selection of Tunnel, Pop-up and Movable Books from the Rare Books Department Tunnel Vision features a selection of pieces from the rare book collections produced using various paper manipulations to create the illusion of depth — framing and narrowing the viewers’ perspective. This exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Book Arts Program, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, and the Rare Books Department. It coincides with two events (see below) inspired by Nancy Holt’s famous land art piece, Sun Tunnels, located in Utah’s west desert.
