Tax Form Information
Although the library used to receive multiple types of tax forms from both the State of Illinois and the IRS, both are now encouraging taxpayers to file their taxes online. As a result, the library receives a very limited number of printed tax forms for distribution. Below are links to help you locate and print tax forms. If you need additional assistance, visit the library and we can assist you with printing at a cost of $0.10 per page.
Tip: Make sure you have the correct tax year before printing any forms. It is often well into February, and sometimes later, before all government agencies post the most current forms.
Federal Tax Forms (IRS)
Please note that the IRS simplified the tax forms a few years ago. The old 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ forms no longer exist. There is now only a simplified 1040 and a 1040-SR for seniors. Several schedules are already included in the booklet for these forms.
- IRS.gov: This main page offers links to standard forms, specialized forms, online file-for-free, and more.
