Due to congressional budget cuts for the IRS, the Library received very few tax forms this year. The Library only received the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ forms. No instructions are available at the Library. We have a binder of reproducable federal tax forms as well as a copy of Publication 17 that you can copy for 10 cents per page. You can obtain and print federal forms online or visit the Library for assistance locating and printing forms. You may request that forms and publications be mailed directly to you by clicking here or calling 1-800-829-3676. State tax information and forms are available online. Printing from public computers is 10 cents per page. The tax filing deadline is Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
