A Reminder on Tax Forms and Assistance


Due to federal budget cuts, the IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program has reduced the number of forms and publications they provide to us and other public libraries.

Only Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ will be available in paper form for patrons to take home. A limited number of instruction booklets will be available.  **The library currently does not have 1040EZ forms.**

  • Visit the IRS website to view or print copies of forms and instructions.
  • To obtain forms and instructions by mail, order online.
  • Order federal forms by phone 800-829-3676.

Tax Assistance

The AARP will be providing tax preparation assistance to individuals at the library during the months of February, March and April. Assistance is by appointment only, and inquires should be directed to the AARP directly. Appointment preference will be given to the elderly and individuals from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. The contact number for appointments is 908-541-5710.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, the elderly and limited English speaking taxpayers. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals.

The Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program offers free tax help for all taxpayers, particularly those who are 60 and older, specializing in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues unique to seniors. The IRS-certified volunteers are often retired individuals associated with non-profit organizations.
