ST. CLOUD - Tax forms are no longer available at area libraries.

The Great River Regional Library has announced they will not be offering the tax forms, due to difficulties in getting the forms and instructions.

Spokeswoman Karen Pundsack says "the IRS has done a poor job getting all of its information and forms to them in a timely manner".

Also, Federal and State agencies are encouraging you to complete your tax returns online.

The IRS toll free number to request forms and publications is 1-800-829-3676. The Minnesota Revenue toll free number is 1-800-652-9094.
