Tax Form Season is here!
I don’t know if you know this, but tax form season is upon us. Much like Black Friday for retail (and we have strong opinions about Black Friday around here), tax form season is that special time of year for everyone to stampede on down to their local library in search of tax forms.
We know you are anxious to get started on your taxes, and want to know when we will have copies of the forms you need.
Alas, we really can’t answer that. We ordered forms months ago, but they never tell us exactly when they’ll arrive.
Some of the forms are here now, and depending on when you read this, may have everything that we’re going to get. Or we’ll have run out of all the cool forms, and only a stack of lonely 8842s will remain.
But if we don’t have what you need, or if you need those forms as soon as possible, keep reading.
Also, AARP will be helping folks with their taxes at the Library this year, but appointments fill up very quickly. In fact, they may be all full up by the time you’re reading this. Call Menomonee Falls CE & Rec at 262-255-8460 for more information.
How do I get the tax forms I need?
Come on down to the Library! If we don’t have what you’re looking for in stock, we can print off whatever you need.
But if you’re more of the DIY type, here are some options.
