Federal Tax Forms

The IRS's Tax Form Outlets Program, which oversees tax form distribution through public libraries (like MRSPL), offers a limited number of printed forms and publications for free distribution to the public during tax season.

IRS Forms and Instruction Available Free in the LIbrary


For the 2019 tax season (covering the 2018 filing year), the following items will be available (while supplies last) for free distribution here in the library:

* Notice from IRS Re New 2019 Simplified Form


"Following the most expansive tax law changes in 30 years, the IRS created a shorter, simpler Form 1040 for the 2019 tax season. The new Form 1040 will replace the current Form 1040 as well as the Form 1040A and the Form 1040EZ. The new Form 1040 uses a 'building block' approach, in which the tax return is reduced to a simple form. That form can be supplemented with additional schedules if needed. Taxpayers with straightforward tax situations would only need to file this new 1040 with no additional schedules."

Additional Forms and Publications


Reference staff can help library patrons photocopy or print most forms, schedules, instructions, and publications from the IRS website; however, a fee of $0.15/page will be charged for each copy/print. 

Individuals may also obtain free copies of forms, instructions, and publications directly from the IRS:

  • www.irs.gov (view/download tax products online)
  • www.irs.gov/orderforms (request tax products online to be delivered by mail)
  • 1-800-829-3676 (request tax products by phone to be delivered by mail)

Virginia Tax Forms

The Commonwealth of Virginia stopped distributing free state tax products through public libraries several years ago. As a result, Mary Riley Styles Public Library is not able to provide free copies of Virginia tax forms and publications. 

Reference staff can help library patrons photocopy or print most forms, instructions, and publications from the Virginia Department of Taxation website; however, a fee of $0.15/page will be charged for each copy/print. 

Individuals may also obtain free copies of forms, instructions, and publications directly from the state:

    • www.tax.virginia.gov (view/download tax forms and instructions online)
    • 1-804-367-8031 (request individual tax forms and instructions by phone to be delivered by mail)
