Federal Tax Forms, Instructions, and Publications

Important Information about tax forms from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

As you may be aware, IRS appropriations were significantly cut in the 2015 Omnibus Appropriations Bill recently passed by Congress.  As a result, the IRS is unable to deliver the same number of forms and instructions to public libraries as they have in the past.


For this filing season, the IRS will provide the following products to the library:

  • Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ

  • Publication 17, one reference copy for each participant (Taxpayers will be able to access Publication 17 in English and Spanish online from irs.gov/Pub17 and, new this year, it will also be available as a free e-Pub for downloading from IRS.gov and viewing on most e-Readers and other mobile devices.)

  • Publication 4604 (EN/SP), Use the Web for IRS Tax Products & Information

  • Publication 1132, Reproducible Copies of Federal Tax Forms and Instructions

Unfortunately, the IRS is unable to offer Instructions for Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ. Library patrons can obtain copies of Instructions through: 

  • IRS.gov/Forms - to view and download

  • IRS.gov/orderforms - to order tax products to be delivered by mail

  • 1-800-829-3676 - to order tax products to be delivered by mail

    As a service to our patrons, the Pittsburg Public Library will print five free copies of any tax form, instruction booklet, or publication. Beyond the first five, patrons are welcome to request the copies they need at a charge of .10 each to help offset the library‚Äôs paper and printing expenses.
