What TAX materials does the Library carry?

Please call ahead to the Reference Desk (515-222-3403) to make sure we have what you need. You can always use our Internet stations to print from the IRS and State of Iowa tax sites (printing/copying = 20 cents/page).

Federal Tax Materials

The WDM Library does NOT carry loose forms or booklets. However, there are many other options:

  • Federal tax forms may be printed from the IRS Web site (requires free Adobe Reader – available on all Library stations). Forms for the new tax year tend to appear after the new year (for filing the following April).
  • The Library does not have booklets or individual forms to pick up; they must be copied (see above) or printed from the IRS Web site or copied from the masters that the Library gets.
  • More obscure forms may not be included in our masters, but they can ALL be found on the IRS Web site.
  • Instructions and tax tables may also be copied or printed.
  • The IRS Web site also has previous years’ tax forms to download and print.
  • Printing and copying both cost 20 cents per page at the Library.
  • Federal income tax forms may also be requested by phone (to be mailed to you) by calling 1-800-829-3676 (1-800-TAX-FORM).

Iowa State Tax Materials

Note: The State no longer provides a master form book to Libraries for copying.  We make a few masters of major forms for you to photocopy (20 cents/page) – anything else can be found on the State of Iowa tax site.

The State of Iowa is no longer sending individual tax booklets automatically to your home.  In addition, the Short Form for Iowa has been discontinued altogether.

  • Iowa tax forms and instructions are available for printing and (NEW for 2015) fillable online forms you can submit – from the State of Iowa tax site.
  • You may request State tax forms be mailed to you by calling 1-800-532-1531.
  • General State tax information is available locally by calling 515-281-3114.
