We do NOT have any hard copies of the 2014 tax forms yet. The State of Michigan forms usually arrive in February. The IRS has announced drastic funding cuts to their forms distribution program, so we will NOT be receiving any federal instruction booklets. We do expect to receive a small amount of tax forms. Forms may be printed from the following websites:
Forms printed at the library are .20/page. Two-sided printing is not available at the library. If you need assistance printing forms, please visit the adult reference desk.
The IRS offers free efiling of Federal taxes at freefile.irs.gov/.
