How can you file your taxes at no charge?


Paper Forms

If you prefer to file the traditional way, we're able to help you obtain paper forms at the Garnet A. Wilson Public Library!

Many of the most common forms are available at the Main Branch in Waverly, but we've also provided some links here that you can access from anywhere you have internet access.

Note: Due to last minute changes in the tax tables, the instructions for the 1040 and 1040A are not yet available at the library. We expect them to arrive sometime before the end of January. The instructions can still be accessed online, in the meantime.
