Tax Information

The deadline to file federal and state taxes is April 18, 2024.


The library carries certain tax forms and instruction booklets each year beginning at the end of January through April. The forms, and how many we carry, are determined by the IRS and State Tax Department. We cannot request additional forms or instruction booklets. You can always access tax information at the websites below. The library will happily print one free copy of any tax form for you. Any additional copies of that form are charged at $0.20 per page.
