Tax Resources at the Library

The Library continues to offer tax information and print tax forms to our users. Both state and federal forms and instructions are in the corridor leading to the children's room. There you'll also find tax reference publications. Ask at the Reference Desk if you don't find what you need; we won't be able to offer tax advice, but we should be able to help you find a reliable source.
