What's Happening @ The Library...

Tax Materials

  • This year, the Library will receive supplies of three IRS forms:  1040, 1040A and 1040EZ.  Unfortunately, we will not receive any instruction booklets for these forms, nor other forms or instructions, due to IRS budget cuts.  You can still read, print or download forms from the IRS website, or order from the IRS online or by calling 1-800-829-3676.

    For information about the Affordable Care Act and taxes, visit our tax page, or the IRS website at

    **As a courtesy, Three Rivers Library allows up to 10 pages of tax forms to be printed for free from our public computers.  Additional pages will be .10 each.  Three Rivers Library also offers Remote Printing so you can find and print your forms from the comfort of your own home and pick up your print jobs at the library.
