Tax forms and tax help

Free tax forms and instruction booklets are available in all regional libraries.

Tax help volunteers are also available in some libraries and other locations around the county, to provide free help with your taxes. 

Search the Library Calendar of Events for tax help times and locations, or call your local library.

Please see the Tax Forms & Information section for  more information.

Update: Only selected forms are available so far.  We received this message from the IRS: "Instructions 1040 and 1040A were released for printing and distribution on January 6, 2011. The impact of this is that these products may not arrive at your location until late January 2011." Until then, you can use the IRS website to download forms we have not yet received.
