Tax Season is Here!

Tax Season is here and we have the information you may need to obtain tax appointments and/or tax forms.

Tax Appointments are available at Worcester Public Library:

The Worcester Public Library is currently taking appointments for the annual free AARP tax preparation assistance. For an appointment, stop by the library or call 508-799-1655, ext. 3. Appointments are available on Saturdays ONLY beginning in February. 

Please read if you normally receive your paper tax forms from Worcester Public Library:
Congress recently cut monies sent to the IRS for federal tax forms. No printed copies of the instructions were sent from the IRS to any public library in the country this year, because of these budget cuts.

Unfortunately, only form 1040 will be available in paper format. Please go to the 2nd floor of the Main Library if you would like to acquire a paper version of form 1040.

To Acquire Federal Tax Forms, Patrons Have the Following Options:
Tax Forms and Instructions can be ordered by phone and sent to your home.   Call 1-800-829-3676

Tax Forms and Instructions can be ordered online and sent to your home.   Go to IRS.gov/orderforms

Tax forms and Instructions can be viewed and downloaded to a printer.  IRS.gov/Forms

The Worcester Public Library will have Reproducible Forms and Instructions that can be photocopied for .15 cents per page.

The Worcester Public Library has ONE copy of Pub 17. That copy can be viewed or photocopied from for .15 cents per page. Photo ID required at the 2nd Floor Reference Desk. 

If you have any questions about the 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill passed by Congress that led to these budget cuts, please contact:
