Tax Form Information

We have forms 1040A & 1040EZ, but have not received form 1040 or any state tax forms yet.

* 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:

  • www.irs.gov/forms - to view and download
  • www.irs.gov/orderforms - 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:
  • www.tax.ny.gov/forms -  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.

Databases & Resources Gets a Facelift!

We've given our Databases & Resources page an overhaul!  You'll find it’s simple, organized and much more user-friendly!

The page is now set up in a table format and organized by category.  You’ll notice all of the databases in HomeAccess have been categorized and identified by an icon.  They’re now more visible and not buried within HomeAccess.  The links that were found under the Community tab have been incorporated into Databases & Resources, as well.

Databases & Resources always had links to pages for the Caldecott Winners, Newbery Winners and Arlington Summer Reading Lists, but now they’re more visible.  These pages have also been given a fresh new look and made more reader-friendly with all of the titles hot-linked to the Library Catalog to make checking an item’s availability quick and easy.

Please take some time to check out the wonderful research tools on our new page.  Just click on Databases & Resources in the navigation bar.  You’ll find that we have so many great resources for all ages!

Sponsor a Magazine 2015

We're grateful to those LaGrange patrons and businesses who sponsor some of the more than 100 magazine titles in our collection.  As a magazine sponsor, you can make your tax-deductible donation in honor or memory of someone, or choose to remain anonymous.  As an added benefit, you can ask to be the first to borrow the magazine!

If you're interested in becoming a magazine sponsor, just follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Print a Magazine Sponsor Form and Magazine List.
  2. Choose which titles you'd like to sponsor by reviewing the list of magazines we currently subscribe to or our wish list.
  3. Return your completed Magazine Sponsor Form, along with your payment to the LaGrange Library and we'll send you an acknowledgement for your tax-deductible donation.

Thank you for supporting the LaGrange Library.  It's truly appreciated!
