Tax Forms and Resources
Siouxland Libraries can connect you to many resources that help you answer your tax questions.
Library staff cannot answer your specific tax questions.
Call your local Siouxland Libraries branch to check the availability of tax forms and instruction booklets. Due to federal budget cuts, the IRS is unable to deliver many forms, instructions, and publications that were available in previous years.
Order tax forms and publications by U.S. mail from the IRS on this webpage.
Some common forms:
1040 instructions (Includes the instructions for Schedules 1 through 6)
More information about each tax schedule is available on this page.
Less common forms:
W-2 (Be sure to read the notice from the IRS at the beginning of this document.)
1099 form (Be sure to read the notice from the IRS at the beginning of this document.)
1096 form (Be sure to read the notice from the IRS at the beginning of this document.)
