Tax Resources at the Library

Tax Resources at the Library

Each year the Handley Regional Library System participates in the IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP). Recent changes from TFOP mean we're receiving fewer tax forms in print. Although the Internal Revenue Service is not able to supply libraries with the full range of printed tax forms, instruction booklets, and tax publications provided in the past, we will still be happy to assist you during this tax prep season. Library staff can assist with locating and printing online tax forms but are not able to give advice regarding the forms that you might need. Black and white printing/copying is $.15 per page.

Tax forms and instruction booklets are available for the 1040 and 1040-SR

The 1040A and 1040EZ have been discontinued as of last year.

General Tax GuidesJ.K. Lasser's Tax Guide 2020

Each year we purchase the newest edition of J.K. Lasser’s Your Income Tax. It is published by a commercial source and not a government agency. They are designed to provide basic tax information to the general public. Remember the dates on these publications run a year ahead of the forms, so when filling out a 2019 tax return, use a 2020 tax guide. We also have several guides for small business taxes and other relevant financial information, though they may not be from the current year. We will be happy to help you search for a book to meet your needs.
