Tyngsborough Public Library carries a few Federal and Massachusetts State Income Tax forms and publications.
PLEASE NOTE that both the IRS and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue are strongly encouraging obtaining tax forms online and are thus sending fewer hard copies to the Library.
Other tax forms may be searched online and printed at the library. Library staff will assist patrons with finding tax forms from states other than Massachusetts and questions about the availability of Federal and Massachusetts forms. For legal reasons, the library staff are not able to answer specific tax questions; please consult your tax preparer for questions about your tax filing.
The IRS will be providing only the following federal forms and instructions to libraries: 1040, 1040A & 1040EZ.
The IRS will also be providing the Library with a book of reproducible forms and instructions. Patrons have the option to make copies from this book at their own expense (10 cents per page).
If you plan on filing electronically: You may use the library’s public computer stations for online tax preparation. However, the security and privacy of your information cannot be guaranteed, and it is always a possibility that technical issues beyond the Library’s control may interrupt or otherwise cause problems with the process. More importantly, the Library cannot guarantee that you will have adequate time to finish your work, and some tax websites do NOT allow you to save your progress.
The Library also carries Internal Revenue Service publications and commercial books about tax preparation. They may be searched in the Library’s catalog using the keyword “income tax”.
