Where are the tax forms?
January 07, 2011
Customers started asking us for tax forms in December. Traditionally, the forms begin arriving after Christmas. We know you want the forms, and we want to provide them to you. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over the availability of forms. Kansas has told us that they will not be sending us any forms, and we do not expect any Missouri forms either. I ordered 2010 Federal Tax Forms for my branch way back in August 2010. So, why are there so few forms at the library right now? According to the IRS, the printing and distribution of many forms has been delayed because of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 (signed by the President on December 17, 2010). Instructions for the popular 1040 and 1040A did not hit the printers until yesterday. So, we do not expect to receive them until late January or early February. Please bear with us as we wait for the forms to arrive.
If you do not mind paying a cost recovery fee of 10 cents per page, library staff can print forms for you from the internet. The MCPL web page has helpful links to tax form web sites so that you can access and print off tax forms from your home computer.
