General Information

There is no set schedule as to when tax forms arrive at the library, though they usually arrive by the end of January at the very latest. Forms are available on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. For specific form availability, please stop in or call the library. Please note that the State of Wisconsin is no longer producing printed versions of instruction booklets for free distribution through public libraries. Patrons may call 608-266-2772

If the library is out of a particular form or does not carry a form that you need, copies can usually be printed by staff at the front desk at the current printing rate ($.15 / printed page as of 2022). A double-sided sheet counts as two pages. Certain forms, including many beginning with 1099, cannot be printed and must instead be ordered directly from the IRS.

Patrons may also obtain tax forms online (links below) or by phone:

Help With Filing Your Taxes

Library staff will be happy to assist you in locating specific tax forms, printing out forms and publications which are not otherwise available at the library, and directing you to sources of additional help. Because library staff are not trained tax professionals, they may not assist you with deciding which forms you need or with filling out your return. For more help, please contact the IRS or the Wisconsin Department of Revenue; you can also make use of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) and AARP Tax Aide Foundation. To find a VITA or Tax-Aide location near you, follow the appropriate link below.

Filing Electronically Using The Library's Computers

Patrons may use the library’s public computer stations for online tax preparation – however, the security and privacy of your information cannot be guaranteed, and it is always a possibility that technical issues beyond the library’s control may interrupt or otherwise cause problems with the process. Only web-based tax sites will work, as patrons may not install software on the computers. More importantly, the library cannot guarantee that you will have adequate time to finish your work, and some tax websites do NOT allow you to save your progress.
