2014 Tax Forms

Tax formsThe library has been providing tax forms for decades. Unfortunately, a reduction in the IRS budget has changed the way the IRS is providing forms. We have been told to expect to receive three forms this year, the 1040, 1040A, and 1040 EZ. We will not receive any instruction booklets. We will put 2014 tax forms out as we receive them. We regret this change to the IRS program, but we are just the messenger, not the cause. Please visit the City of Troy website for city tax forms and instructions. You can also visit the State of Ohio, and websites for 2014 tax forms and instructions. The local IRS office can be reached at 937-610-2182.

The AARP will be holding a free tax service and e-Filing sessions at the Troy-Miami County Public Library on Fridays, February 6 – April 10, 2015 from 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m.; this free service is provided on a first come, first serve basis. You do not have to be a member of AARP to participate in this service. For more information about the AARP Tax Aide program, please call 1-888-227-7669 or visit them on the web.
