Free tax help available in St. Lucie County

You can get free help on your taxes starting Tuesday at the Fort Pierce public library. Volunteers from AARP will be on hand to help.

You don't need to make a reservation, but it is a first-come first-serve basis, and you need to make less than 54,000 a year.
