Tax Information

Locate tax forms, publications, and local sources of assistance.

Tax Forms

All available income tax materials can be downloaded from the IRS website. They also can be ordered for delivery by mail.

Patrons can use library computers, WiFi, and printers to download and print tax materials, and find helpful tax preparation resources.

Due to Internal Revenue Service cutbacks, taxpayers seeking printed tax forms will find fewer of them in public libraries.  Any materials we receive are located near the Help Desk on the main floor of the Central Library.
