Windsor Locks Public Library

Oscar, a literate canine.




Some Connecticut tax forms are currently available at the library. We are expecting Federal forms soon. We have been informed that instructions for 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ will not be available until late in Februaray. Please check the IRS Forms & Publications Page for additional federal forms and instructions.

Volunteer AARP IRS-Certified tax counselors will also be available on Mondays at the Windsor Locks Senior Center, 41 Oak Street starting February 10. This service is available during February, March, and April for eligible lower and middle income taxpayers and those over 60 years of age. Hour-long appointments (8:30 AM - 2:30 PM) are available. Please call Lori Lapointe at the Senior Center (860-627-1425) to schedule an appointment.

You may contact Connecticut AARP for information on other Tax-Aid locations in our state. No tax help is available at the library. Members of the library's staff are not trained to advise you on your tax returns or on the appropriate tax forms to use, but we are happy to help you locate needed forms in the library or online.

For information on the Affordable Care Act and how it might affect your tax return, visit Affordable Care Act Tax Provisions.

Information on free electronic tax filing will be available soon for taxpayers that meet the maximum adjusted gross income requirement ($58,000 or less) through the IRS FreeFile Page. All taxpayers will find information about e-filing at IRS.gov/efile.

The U.S. Post Office no longer stocks tax forms. As a service to our patrons, the Windsor Locks Public Library is happy to provide access to both State and Federal tax forms and instructions. During the months of January, February, and March the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the CT Department of Revenue Services send us many of the most requested forms and instruction booklets for distribution to our patrons. These are available free of charge at the library. Due to space constraints we are unable to provide paper copies of every form that might be requested, so we also offer reproducible copies of most U.S. and State tax forms. These may be copied in the library for $ .20 per page.

All of the State and Federal tax forms and instructions are also available online and may be printed out at home or in the library. Click on the links below for complete listings of state and federal forms. We charge $ .20 per page for printing.

Many of these forms are in PDF (portable document) format, and accessing them requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader. This software may be downloaded and installed on your home computer for free from Adobe Systems .

Current and prior years' federal tax forms and information may be accessed at the CT Department of Revenue Services.

Current year forms and instructions for any state in the U.S. can be downloaded from Federation of Tax Administrators. If you need a tax lawyer or have legal questions related to your tax filings, FindLaw.com may provide some helpful resources.

Please remember that although your library staff is willing and able to help you locate any tax forms or instructions that you might need, we are not trained to answer specific questions about your tax returns or to recommend forms. Consult your a trained tax preparer for information about your returns.
