Select Tax Forms Available

The IRS has notified libraries that distribution of federal tax forms will be delayed this year due to late-breaking tax law changes. The Nebraska Department of Revenue stopped sending tax forms to libraries several years ago. To date, the library has received the following federal tax forms, which can be picked up free of charge at the library.

  • Form 1040EZ and instruction booklet
  • Schedule B
  • Schedule EIC

Library staff can help you print tax forms from either the IRS or the Nebraska Department of Revenue web pages, but there will be a 10 cents per page charge for any forms printed. Staff can help you find specific forms, but staff can't offer any tax advice regarding which forms you may need.
