    Tax Forms

    Each year, the library distributes a limited number of tax forms sent to us by the federal government and the state of Illinois. 

    To order paper copies of Federal forms and booklets, call 800/829-3676 or order paper copies online. For state forms and booklets, call 1-800-356-6302 or order paper copies online.

    The library will receive a shipment of Federal 1040 forms and instructions in late January. The forms are in a booklet and include the 1040. If you need any other forms or instructions, please ask for help at the 1st Floor Ask Us Desk. We can provide the first 10 prints of tax forms for free and then $0.10 per page thereafter.

    Please note that the state sends the library a very limited supply of forms and instructions and will not resupply once the library's supply is exhausted.
