Where Are My Federal Tax Forms?

In the past you could always count on the library having plenty of federal tax forms and booklets available during the height of tax season. We are part of the IRS’ Library Program, which provides the forms and booklets to libraries across the nation. Boxes from the IRS usually begin arriving in late December, and we put them out for you right after New Year’s Day.
