Your Taxes and the Library
As tax season draws near, you may be wondering what tax forms and information the library has to offer. We’re here to help!
IRS.gov/forms — Your Best Resource
The fastest, easiest way to get the tax forms and information you need is through the IRS website—IRS.gov/forms.
On the website, you can view, download, or print IRS forms, publications, and instructions. You’ll find:
- Current year forms and publications—the latest versions in PDF format.
- Prior year forms and publications—past revisions in PDF format.
- Accessible forms and publications for screen readers and Braille output.
You can also have a form delivered to you by mail by visiting IRS.gov/orderforms. Or you may call the IRS to order forms at 1-800-829-3676.

What the Library Does Not Offer
Unfortunately, library employees are unable to offer any tax advice or assistance choosing the correct forms.
If you need guidance, we recommend checking J.K. Lasser’s Your Income Tax 2018, available in the reference section of each library.
We also recommend Free File—a free e-filing service from the IRS for taxpayers with incomes below $66,000. All taxpayers are eligible to use Free File fillable forms, which are designed for those who are confident preparing their own tax returns.
What Summit County Library Does Offer
All three libraries are currently stocked with 2018 tax forms.
This year, the IRS has redesigned the 1040 form, which replaces the 1040A and 1040EZ forms and instructions. Many people will only need to file Form 1040, but if your return is more complicated, you may need to complete one or more form schedules. Learn more here.
This year, we do not have the book of reproducible forms.
Colorado state form 104 includes a form and instructions in one booklet. Forms for other states are available only online.
Mark your calendar! This year, the filing deadline is April 15, 2019.
