Federal Tax Forms Will Be Limited

The Sidney Library will have a limited supply of federal income tax forms and instructions in the near future. We will no longer have access to reproducible federal forms. This is due to the continued growth in electronic filing (e-filing) and the IRS’s attempt to reduce costs.

Don’t worry: there are ways to get any federal form or instruction packet. The IRS website, www.irs.gov, always has forms available for download. In addition, you can call and request forms be mailed to you. According to the IRS website:

You can call 1-800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676) Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time to order current year forms, instructions and publications as well as prior year forms and instructions by mail. You will receive your order by mail, usually within 10 days.

We expect to have our regular supply of state income tax forms.
