Starting in late January, the library will have the basic IRS form 1040 available. In 2019 we will also receive the instruction booklets for the 1040 tax form. Forms and booklets do not all arrive at the same time and some may not arrive until mid-February.
As of February 1st, 2019 these forms are available:
1040 form (Includes Schedules 1-6)
1040 Instruction booklets
(We have run out of the 1099-MISC forms. These forms are available at office supply stores or can be filed electronically.)
NOTE: For tax year 2018, the IRS has revised the 1040 form and will no longer offer the 1040 A or 1040 EZ form. All taxpayers will use the 1040 form – read more here.
Additional federal tax forms, instruction booklets and supplemental forms are available online at www.irs.gov or can be requested at 1-800-829-3676.
The Kansas K-40, Schedule S and K-40H (homestead claim) forms will be available at the Customer Service desk for 25¢ each. The library purchases these forms from the State of Kansas and the charge is to cover our costs.
Kansas tax forms are also available at the Taxpayer Assistance Center located in the Scott State Office Building (120 SE 10th).
