IRS Changes Service to Public Libraries


If you use paper to file your taxes, it may be more difficult for you this year.  The Internal Revenue Service has changed the service to public libraries this year.

The IRS will no longer provide paper copies of the instruction booklets for:

  • 1040
  • 1040A
  • 1040EZ

You may order them by calling 1-800-829-3676 or downloading instruction booklet at

For library customers, it would cost about $19 to print one booklet.  Please be advised this is not within the perimeters of our available resources.  If you rely on the printed instruction booklet to file your taxes you may have to allow extra time to obtain a copy of the booklet.
