Tax Forms

Where are the Tax Forms?

The IRS has cut back on the printed forms and instruction books sent to libraries and is encouraging people to submit their taxes electronically online.  We expect to receive hard copies for the most common tax forms, but the library may not receive all instruction booklets and tax forms from the IRS this year.

So what do you do if you don't want to file online or have an accountant prepare your taxes?  Federal Tax Instructions are viewable online at www.IRS.gov and the Federal tax forms can be downloaded and printed from the IRS website.  You can also call the IRS at 1-800-829-3676 and request the forms you need to be mailed to you.
