Where are the tax forms?
If you want a printed 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ tax form or forms for the state of Ohio, the Clermont County Public Library will have a limited number available.
The IRS and Ohio are greatly reducing the number of printed tax forms. Also, no instruction booklets will be printed by the IRS and very few by the state.
Instead, IRS and state officials want you to visit their websites to download the forms and instructions you need.
Visit IRS.gov for federal tax information. Visit tax.ohio.gov for state tax information. Or call the IRS locally at (513) 263-3333 or Ohio at (800)282-1780.
