AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will provide free tax assistance to seniors and low-to-moderate income taxpayers at the library on Monday and Friday mornings starting Feb. 12 and running through mid-April. Appointments must be made by calling 630/887-8760 ext. 239 or in person at the Adult Ask Us Desk. The library will also have a limited number of paper tax forms (with instructions) for distribution. Federal forms include 1040, 1040A, and 1040 EZ. Illinois forms include IL 1040 and Schedule ICR. Staff at the Ask Us Desk will print other forms for patrons. The first 10 pages are free, and additional pages are 10 cents per page. The second copy of any form will also cost 10 cents per page. For those preparing their own returns, we have the latest tax preparation books, as well as instructions on how to order any necessary forms.
As in years past, the library will be distributing Illinois and federal tax forms to the public. According to the Internal Revenue Service, "the majority of shipments for Forms 1040, 1040 and 1040EZ, and their respective Schedules and Instructions may begin in mid to late January.” The forms will be on shelving adjacent to the Ask Us Desk. For questions, call 630-887-8760, ext. 240.
We are excited to announce the arrival of the 1040 instruction booklets. Pick up your copy today! Want to check out tax resources online? Visit our Tax Help page for links to the federal and state websites.
The production of some 2012 major tax products, including the Form 1040 and the Instructions for Form 1040, is impacted by the recent passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. At this time, we do not have an estimate as to when products will become available on IRS.gov or in print.
