2013 Tax Forms
The IRS has informed us that forms and instructions have begun shipping. Updated shipping status can be found here. Please note that the date at that website is only when the IRS has begun shipping those particular items. It could take as long as three weeks for the library to actually receive the item(s) from the date shown. The library does receive individual shipping notifications from the IRS, and it can take as long as seven to ten days when we receive our individual shipping notice to when we actually receive the items. Forms and instructions can be accessed at the IRS website. However, the IRS is still uploading 2013 forms so you will see 2012 forms at the "current" forms and publications list.
The Illinois Department of Revenue has a notice up on its website that Illinois state forms will not be available until January 31. The state site can be accessed here.
Adult Services staff will also be able to print out a limited number of forms and schedules for patrons - two (2) of each form and/or schedule. Due to the size of the instruction booklets and publications, the library will be unable to print out these items.
