Filing Taxes by Mail

Times are changing and while many taxpayers choose to file their taxes electronically, others still prefer to submit their forms by mail. The print shipments from the IRS and IDOR to public libraries have been delayed and reduced significantly this year.

The Library no longer has state instruction books available and IDOR will not be sending additional quantities of forms nor instructions  to the Library.  As of this date, the Library has not yet received the IRS instructions for the 1040 or 1040A.

To request forms to be delivered to you individually in print, you may call  the IRS or IDOR directly, or  download and print copies of forms, instructions, or publications.

Internal Revenue Service: 800-829-3676 (Note: delivery dates were impacted by late tax legislation.) http://www.irs.gov/Forms-&-Pubs

Illinois Department of Revenue: 800-356-6302 (Note: the IDOR is encouraging filers to submit electronically and have limited the amounts of forms/instructions shipped to public libraries.) http://www.revenue.state.il.us/TaxForms/index.htm

The IDOR and IRS determine their own shipping dates.

Our Reference Desk would happy to help you access the IRS or IDOR websites to locate the forms you may need.
