With the first of the year, many people’s thoughts turn to filing annual income tax returns. The libraries know this because for many years the library has been the place to pick up your tax forms and instruction booklets – at no charge. Well, there are some changes this year from the Internal Revenue Service, and the libraries will be receiving very few forms and NO instruction booklets. There are options: you can order tax forms direct from IRS to be delivered by mail at 1-800-829-3676
