Get tax forms, instructions online


The IRS tax filing deadline is Wednesday, April 15, 2015!

This year, most forms and instructions will be available only online.

Due to Congressional budget cuts, the IRS is printing only three forms (1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ) and is offering a very limited quantity of those forms to the Library.

The number of Ohio forms printed and made available to the Library also has been reduced.

Federal, state, and local forms & instructions are available online (see below for links). Taxpayers wishing to file paper returns can also contact the offices listed below.
