Tax Forms Information



TAX FORMS INFORMATION
The federal government will mail some of the most basic forms to libraries.  Forms have been ordered but, to date, none have been received, and we have not received an estimate of when forms will arrive.  To pursue obtaining copies of the form sooner, you may:


  • Visit the IRS web site to download and print forms: https://www.irs.gov/ 
  • Request forms by mail by calling the IRS at 1-800-829-3676


The State of Minnesota no longer sends tax forms to libraries.  To obtain Minnesota state tax forms, you may:
  

  •  Visit the state revenue web site to download and print forms:  www.revenue.state.mn.us
  •  Have forms mailed to you by calling the Minnesota Department of Revenue: 651-296-3781 or 800-652-9094 (toll-free).


The usual printing charges ($.25/page) will apply to forms printed at the library.

Additionally, the IRS notes that a new law requires the IRS to hold refunds until mid-February in 2017 for people claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit or the Additional Child Tax Credit. In addition, new identity theft and refund fraud safeguards put in place by the IRS and the states may mean some tax returns and refunds face additional review.”  For additional information on this topic, you may find the full article here: https://www.irs.gov/uac/as-holidays-approach-irs-reminds-taxpayers-of-refund-delays-in-2017
