IRSFederal Tax Form

For Tax Year 2018, you will no longer use Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ, but instead will use the redesigned Form 1040. Many people will only need to file Form 1040 and no schedules.


You can click the form you want and print off a copy. You can also utilize library computers to print the forms you need.

The IRS is also sending out a limited number of instruction booklets this year. Booklets can also be found online and printed off if necessary. Links to the booklets and other commonly used forms can be found below:

To order forms from the IRS, call 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676) or order online.
