Tax season begins January 29, 2018. The IRS is currently working to finalize the forms and instructions to reflect the legislation which passed in late December. As a result, shipments of print forms are coming later than normal. The libraries currently have print copies of SOME federal tax forms and instructions. Please call or visit your branch to find out which ones are currently available. Please note: The IRS is reviewing The Bipartisan Budget Act enacted on February 9, 2018, that retroactively extended and modified numerous tax provisions covering 2017. As most tax forms were printed for distribution prior to the signing of new legislation, this may impact some tax forms ordered. To ensure you have the latest version of the tax product, the IRS strongly encourages you to visit IRS.gov for updates on the implementation of this law. Updated versions of tax forms will only be available on IRS.gov.
All libraries DO have limited copies of Maryland tax forms at this time.
