Update on Tax Forms and Booklets Available at BPL
For many years the Birmingham Public Library has participated in the IRS' Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP). Thanks to TFOP, taxpayers could pick up many of the forms and instruction booklets they needed to file their taxes at their local branch library. Recently the library received a message from the Program. In essence, it says that due to budget restrictions, only the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ forms will be available in paper format at the library. State 40 and 40NR forms and instruction booklets are available at most library locations. All other forms and instruction booklets can be found online at IRS.gov.
Here is a link to the full message. http://www.irs.gov/uac/TFOP-News-and-Updates.
Taxpayers would be wise to see this as another sign of how much of the business of our lives now must be conducted online. Fortunately, the library offers classes for anyone who wants to improve his or her computer skills. Class listings can be found at http://www.bplonline.org/calendar/. Use the keyword "computer" to search for the classes.
