Library - Where to Find 2018 Tax Forms and Information
The deadline to file state and federal income tax returns is Monday, April 15, 2019.
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). Please note that 2018 federal reproducible forms have not yet arrived.
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.

According to the IRS website, "For Tax Year 2018, you will no longer use Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ, but instead will use the redesigned Form 1040. Many people will only need to file Form 1040 and no schedules. However, if your return is more complicated (for example you claim certain deductions or credits, or owe additional taxes) you will need to complete one or more of the new Form 1040 Schedules."
IRS-trained and certified volunteers provide free, first-come, first-served basic assistance with filing federal and state taxes online. This service is open to anyone but is aimed at moderate-income and low-income people ages 50 and older. Volunteers cannot assist with business or complicated individual returns.
