1.  Both libraries will be able to help you print the forms you need from the IRS site (http://www.irs.gov/Forms-&-Pubs).  There is a $0.10 charge per black and white page.  Please note – we cannot print entire instruction booklets.

2.  You may use your home or public computer to print the forms yourself.

3.  You can request materials online at http://www.irs.gov/uac/Forms-and-Publications-by-U.S.-Mail, and they will be mailed to you in 7 – 15 days – no charge.
