    The library is one of the few places where townsfolk can get physical forms and booklets. This year however, the IRS is currently working to finalize the forms and instructions to reflect the legislation which passed in late December. As a result, some shipments of forms and booklets may come later than normal. We currently have forms 1040EZ and 1040 in stock.  We have the instruction booklets for 1040's. The official tax season started on January 29th and most, if not all, forms will be available online at https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions at that time.
