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.

The library is located at 101 Melody Lane.  Tax help is occurring at the location on March 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 9 a.m. to noon.
