Tax Form Information

We have federal forms 1040, 1040A & 1040EZ and New York State forms.

* Please note this important change regarding the availability of federal tax forms *

Due to significant cuts to IRS funding, the Tax Form Outlet Program will not be supplying the nation's libraries with the assortment of forms and instructions we have had in the past.  We will only be supplied with the major federal tax forms 1040, 1040A & 1040EZ, but we will not be receiving instructions.  New York State forms and instructions will be supplied as normal.


Federal instructions and forms can be obtained through:

  • - to view and download
  • - to order tax products to be delivered by mail
  • 1-800-829-3676 - to order tax products to be delivered by mail
  • Local IRS Office - 191 Main Street, Poughkeepsie, (845) 452-2220, 8:30am-4:30pm (closed 1-2pm for lunch)

New York State instructions and forms can be obtained through:
  • -  to view and download
  • 1-518-457-5431 - to order tax products to be delivered by mail

Library staff can assist you in printing any forms and instructions at a cost of 10 cents per page.
