Due to budget cuts, the IRS will be sending libraries only a limited number of 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms and instruction booklets. No other forms or booklets are being provided. Some branches will have booklets of reproducible federal tax forms from which you may make copies. You may order federal forms and booklets from the IRS webpage or by calling 1-800-829-3676 Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the IRS will send them to your residence. They are also available online.
