Tax Forms and Filing Information

The library has a very limited quantity of the basic Federal forms available for distribution, and basic Illinois state forms will be arriving soon. Federal forms can be found at http://www.irs.gov, and Illinois state forms are at http://www.revenue.state.il.us/TaxForms/. You can find an online listing of free tax volunteers for seniors and low income individuals. Or, you can stop in and library staff can show you how to get tax help, and also print forms for you at 10¢ a page. We're here to help!
