What TAX materials does the Library carry?
Please call ahead to the Help Desk (319-753-1647) to make sure we have what you need. You can always use our Public Computer stations to print from the IRS and State of Iowa tax sites (printing/copying = 15 cents per B&W page).

Burlington Public 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 15 cents per B&W 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).
