Tax Forms:

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

  • We will only have Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ for patrons to take home.  No instruction books will be available.
  • We currently have the 1040 and 1040A forms, but we do not yet have the 1040EZ forms.  All available forms are near the water fountains at the front of the library.
  • Visit the IRS website to view or print copies of forms and instructions
  • You may also order forms to come to you by mail at this website
  • You may also order forms by phone at 800-829-3676.  If you call please expect long waits due to IRS staff reductions

New Jersey no longer provides tax forms of publication to public libraries.  You can visit the New Jersey Division of Taxation website for more information.

  • Forms are now available on their website
  • You can order NJ forms to be sent to you by fax at NJ TaxFax 609-826-4500 

There are handouts at Circulation and Reference that also give you this information on how to obtain 2014 tax forms.

Sunshine by Robin McKinley is this week’s Staff Pick.  A refreshing take on vampires, this is a unique fantasy and very well done.  It’s an all time favorite of our staffer.

There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it’s unwise to walk. Sunshine knew that. But there hadn’t been any trouble out at the lake for years, and she needed a place to be alone for a while.

Unfortunately, she wasn’t alone. She never heard them coming. Of course you don’t, when they’re vampires.

They took her clothes and sneakers. They dressed her in a long red gown. And they shackled her to the wall of an abandoned mansion – within easy reach of a figure stirring in the moonlight.

She knows that he is a vampire. She knows that she’s to be his dinner, and that when he is finished with her, she will be dead. Yet, as dawn breaks, she finds that he has not attempted to harm her. And now it is he who needs her to help him survive the day…”–Taken from Goodreads.com
