The Government Information Library HAS received the standard 2019 forms and instructions. Some employer-specific forms have arrived. There will be a limited quantity of tax forms. They are available on the 3rd floor of Norlin Library near the entrance to the Government Information Library.

2019 Updates: Form 1040-SR, Form 1040-SR, U.S. Tax Return for Seniors, has been introduced for 2019. You can use this form if you were born before January 2, 1955. The form generally mirrors Form 1040. Read more information about the Form 1040 and accompanying schedules here.

The Internal Revenue Service is moving to a web-first service approach and reducing the availability of paper tax products. This applies to every library that supplies tax forms to the public. Many forms can, as always, be printed from IRS.gov. You can also request forms and publications to be mailed to your address. The IRS provides a question and answer page about the changes to the 1040 form on their website.

Library staff cannot answer tax-related questions or provide any assistance in filling out tax forms.
