Update on Tax Forms

We have had many question about tax forms.  Due to the federal government shutdown, IRS personnel are currently on furlough.

Reuters News announced that “The U.S. Internal Revenue Service said on Tuesday it intends to bring back more than 46,000 workers furloughed by the partial shutdown of the federal government to process annual tax returns and refunds and other tasks.”

Furthermore, only “about 57 percent of its 80,000-member workforce, would be designated “excepted or exempt” from the shutdown.” Due to the furlough, and that the staffing still won’t be at full levels, be prepared for delays. There have also been changes to the tax code for 2018 which could also contribute to the distribution of IRS materials being much slower than normal.

People may visit the IRS website to download and print forms.

A reminder that due to the new tax code, there will be no 1040A or 1040EZ forms for 2018.  Please use the re-designed Form 1040. [https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions]

Please call the library before coming down for tax forms, or contact your local IRS office (when it re-opens) for more information.
