We're in the middle of tax season, and some people who paper-file are running into an unusual problem.

More people are filing their taxes online than ever before, prompting the IRS to reduce the number of paper income tax forms that they print. As a result, some people who are used to getting those forms from the Library are getting frustrated with Library staff because the forms they want are not readily available.

Great River Public Library explains that they ordered their supply of tax forms from the IRS back in October, but forms had to be revised due to the Bush tax cuts.

As a result, the first order of forms arrived in January, and the Library quickly ran out.

That re-order has not arrived yet, and the library asks that you be patient with the library and it's staff - libraries aren't obligated to provide tax forms, and this issue is out of their control.
