Desperately Seeking Tax Forms?

tax form graphicThe IRS will not be providing libraries with the array of forms it has in the past, only the basics like Form 1040. No instruction booklets will be available at the library either.

Look here for phone numbers and links for ordering or downloading the tax forms you need. Publication 17, which includes the tax tables, can be viewed as a PDF or downloaded in ePub format to some ereaders. (Click the ebook tab on this page for more on IRS ebooks.)

The good news is that the Albany Library has received 540EZ forms and should soon have the basic IRS forms (1040, 1040A, 1040EZ) available to pick up.
