Wi$e Money Week is a partnership of more than 50 public and private organizations who pull together one week each year to offer financial education–free of charge and open to the public–with no sales pitches. This year’s workshops and events will be held May 11 – 17.
It’s a wonderful opportunity for anyone, no matter what your income or level of knowledge, to bring your questions to the experts.
Jacksonville Public Library is pleased to participate and to provide the Main Library and 16 neighborhood branch locations for a variety of workshops that will be offered. It is one of many programs that JPL offers to help our customers achieve economic success.
Here are a few of the topics to be covered by this year’s financial experts:
- Paying for College
- Individual Tax Update
- Taxes for Small Business Owners
- Planning for Social Security
- Establishing and repairing credit
- Preventing and Recovering from Identity Theft
- Retirement planning
- Protecting Your Investments
On Monday, May 12, at noon at the Main Library, Mamie Davis, attorney and CPA, will present an Overview of Estate Planning. Davis said she will talk about key decisions people will need to make, and the use of wills and trusts. Those who attend the workshop should walk away knowing the “basic instruments they should have in place to properly manager their estate,” Davis said.
Other presenters at Main will cover topics on individual and small business taxes and planning for social security.
There is truly something for everyone, in all areas of the city.
