Looking for tax forms?

At the Main Library

  • Print popular federal and state forms on demand, at no charge, from a dedicated computer station in the lobby.
  • The most popular tax forms are saved as PDF files on the desktop. Simply click on the form or publication you need, and it will print at no charge to you.
  • If you're looking for forms or publications that aren't available at the dedicated station in the lobby, stop by any service desk, and we'll print forms for you at no charge.

At Dole and Maze branches

  • Ask for help at any service desk, and we'll print forms for you at no charge.

At home

Why isn't the library stocking paper tax forms this year?

More and more taxpayers are filing their tax returns electronically. In the 2015 tax season, only around 12% of taxpayers submitted their returns on paper. Additionally, the Internal Revenue Service is no longer sending paper forms to public libraries or postal offices.

To reduce our paper waste and respond to demand, we're printing forms as customers need them.

Taxpayers also can use two-hour public computer sessions to file electronic returns online.
