Frequently Asked Questions

Do libraries have tax forms this year?

Call your local library to make sure the form you need is available.

Last year, library staff printed a specific tax form for me. Will they do it this year too?

Yes, library staff will print a specific form upon request but you will need to view instructions, tables, and schedules online. Staff cannot provide advice to you about which form you need.

The library closest to me has run out of forms; will you send more forms to my library?

Once a library runs out of forms, you will need to pick them up from a different library. Staff can help you locate a form at another nearby library, if they are still available.

Will you mail tax forms to me?

Tax forms can be picked up at your local library.
