IRS providing fewer printed tax forms
Jan. 20, 2015 – Each year, many library patrons find their printed Federal Tax Forms at Salina Public Library. The library participates in the IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP), a service that ships bulk printed tax forms and publications to public libraries. This year, the IRS has announced that they are drastically reducing the variety of forms available in previous years because of Congressional budget cuts that limit the funds for printable forms.
For 2014 forms, the following changes in the IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program have been announced:
- Library shipments will be late; Salina Public Library has not been notified when its supply of forms will arrive.
- Library shipments will include only forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ. No additional forms will be sent – this means no Schedule A, Schedule B, etc.
- Library shipments will not include instruction booklets.
Tax forms are already available on the IRS website at irs.gov/forms for downloading and printing. Library patrons can use the library’s public computers to print them (or ask library staff at the Information Services desk to print them). There is a $.10 charge per page.
Tax forms, instructions and publications also can be ordered for delivery by mail to your home at IRS.gov/orderforms or by calling 1-800-829-3676.
