This year’s tax season will be different from past years, due to cost-cutting measures at the IRS and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. These changes are:
- The IRS is NOT sending paper forms or instructions to peoples’ homes. You can request the IRS send forms to your house by calling 800-829-3676 after January 1st.
- The state tax booklets this year will only include one copy of the forms – they will NOT include any instructions. The booklets WILL be send to peoples’ homes
The library will have reference copies of forms and instructions for patrons to photocopy. Also, all of these forms and instructions will be available online. You can visit the websites below for reference or to print your own copies:
The library will still have a (limited) supply, and we’ll do our best to fill everyone’s tax form needs.
We do plan on offering the AARP Tax-Aide Volunteer again this year, and will begin taking appointments in mid- to late-January. Please contact the Reference Desk with question, and we, try to help you find the resource you need – but remember, library staff is not qualified to offer tax advice.
