Tax Forms

On January 4, the IRS announced that the 2018 tax filing season would begin on January 29. The IRS set the opening date to ensure the security and readiness of key tax processing systems in advance of the opening and to assess the potential impact of recent tax legislation on 2017 tax returns.

We are currently working to finalize the forms and instructions to reflect the legislation which passed in late December. As a result, some shipments may come later than normal.

While most IRS tax forms, instructions and publications will be available electronically on by the beginning of the filing season (Jan. 29), the printing and distribution process for printed products takes longer to complete.

Tax forms usually start to arrive at the libraries in January.  Click here for info on AARP tax help program

The IRS will not be sending out any 1040, 1040 A or 1040 EZ instruction booklets in addition to several other forms and publications that libraries used to receive. You may order them from the IRS webpage or by calling 1-800 TAX FORM  (1-800-829-3676)  Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the IRS will send them to your residence. They are also available online.

Library staff can assist with locating and printing online tax forms but are not able to give advice regarding the forms that you might need. Black and white printing/copying is $.20 per page.

While the library staff is happy to help you with the index or table of contents to the reproducible tax forms, for legal reasons we cannot give you any tax advice or answer any tax questions such:

  • "What form should I file?"
  • "Should I use form A or form B?"
  • "Do I need to file X form?"

We're librarians, not tax professionals.  If you need tax advice or answers to questions, please contact the Department of Revenue or a professional tax preparation service.  Phone numbers are listed below.
