Tax Forms & Tax Help

Tax forms, pencil, keyboard & coffee - tax season is here again.

The 2019 Tax Season

All the main paper tax forms are available now at the library.

More tax forms and information are available online now at the links below.   

Federal tax forms have changed. The 1040-A and 1040-EZ forms have been eliminated. Everyone will fill out a 1040 form this year, and it is a shorter form. To get a deduction, or if you have complicated taxes, expect to use additional forms. 

April 15 is this year's tax deadline!

Income Tax Forms From Prior Years

The library is always a source of tax forms that you can print from the Internet or copy from a binder of reproducible forms.

Printing and copying costs ten cents a page.
