Tax Information

Due to budget cuts, the Internal Revenue Service is not able to supply libraries with the full range of printed tax forms, instruction booklets, and tax publications provided in the past. For 2016 income taxes, only the following income tax forms will be available at our libraries: 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ and Instruction booklets. Please call your library branch and ask about availability before driving over.

A limited number of printed federal tax products are available at some local IRS Tax Assistance Centers. The IRS suggests obtaining print forms, instructions, and publications in 3 ways:

The local office of the North Carolina Department of Revenue has state forms, instructions, and publications, but does not offer federal forms.

Some Charlotte Mecklenburg Library branches have business tax forms and publications. Please contact your local branch to find out which of these are available.
