"The instruction we find in books is like fire. We fetch it from our neighbours, kindle it at home, communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all."

—Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire (1694-1778) French philosopher, writer, Candide

Where to go for information and assistance at tax time - updated 2/1/2014

NOTE: This page is updated early each January with the latest links and access information for tax preparation. Questions? Ask a librarian.

Services available at the Library

  • Online access to forms and publications from any public computer in the library (catalog, research, and internet workstations).  Look for the "Tax Forms" link.
  • Printing for 10 cents per page; deposit funds to your library card account or pay at the reference desk.
  • Circulating copies of the three most popular publications (including Your Federal Income Tax (Pub 17),  Instructions for the 1040 and 1040A, and Oregon's Publication 17 1/2). These will be handled as “Bestsellers” – 2 week checkout, no holds allowed.
    Look for them on the Bestseller carts at the library
  • Tax preparation books for check out or quick reference

Services available elsewhere (but not at CMCL)

  • Printed forms or AARP Tax Help - see WCCLS' Tax Help page
  • To receive U.S. tax forms by mail, place an order online or call 1-800-829-3676. The IRS does not automatically mail tax forms to individuals. (More Info here). The government expects citizens to use web-based products and services for both state and federal tax filing if at all possible.

NOTE: We no longer have current TurboTax software available due to license restrictions that prevent library circulation.
