Library - Where to Find 2015 Tax Forms and Information
The deadline to file state and federal income tax returns is Monday, April 18, 2016 (this year April 15 is Emancipation Day, a Federal holiday).
Pre-printed tax forms are not available at the library, but we do have books of reproducible federal and state forms for photocopying (20 cents per page).
We can also help you locate many online forms as well as resources to help you file your taxes. All forms/instructions are in PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader for use, which can be downloaded for free at www.adobe.com.
