Federal

Once again this year, the IRS will only be sending a limited number of paper forms and instructions for Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ. If you need forms, instructions, or publications that our libraries don’t have in print, please visit this site for access - www.irs.gov/formspubs.

Forms and publications can also be found on the IRS Tax Map Site and the Interactive Tax Assistant Page, which includes users' questions and provides tax law answers.

A reminder that librarians are available to help individuals locate their tax forms/instructions online, order and print forms. A fee of 15¢ per page will be applied.

An individual can request that up to 10 different IRS products be mailed to their address. They will receive two copies of each ordered form and one copy of each ordered publication. Instructions for completing the tax forms will automatically be included.

To begin, follow this link - www.irs.gov/orderforms. Next, type the number of the product into the search bar, check the boxes for the specific products, and follow the prompts to check out. The IRS asks for the person's name and address- no email address or ID verification is necessary. Individuals can also call 1-800-829-3676 to request the forms and the delivery time is 7-10 days from request or availability.

State of Ohio

The Ohio Department of Taxation (ODT) has decided to end the bulk distribution of Ohio’s paper tax forms. According to the ODT, only 10% of the printed personal income tax forms end up being filed with the state and a very small percentage of the paper forms distributed to public libraries are actually filed.
 
However, they will continue to provide income tax instruction booklets to organizations (including public libraries) participating in their distribution program.

The Ohio IT 1040, IT 1040 EZ and amended IT 1040X forms have been consolidated into one Universal IT 1040 tax return. Please see the "Tax Forms- State of Ohio and Prior Year" section below to access this form and others.
