Tax Form Info.

The federal, state, and local governments are pushing to have more individuals file online.

In 2018, libraries received a letter from the IRS stating that the Federal Government will no longer allow libraries to order hard copies of forms or instruction booklets for the public to access via libraries. However, YPL staff will be glad to help you find and print general and specialty tax forms for you at our circulation desk ($0.25 per page printing fee will be applied).

There are also quick links on the YoungsvillePublicLibrary.org website (references tab/taxes drop down) to connect you to federal, state, and local tax forms on-line if you’d prefer to print information at home or would like to e-order forms and booklets.

If you would prefer to order tax forms and instruction booklets by phone for home delivery, contact 1-800-829-3676 for Federal Forms and 1-888-PATAXES (1-888-728-2937) for State Tax Forms.
