Tax Form 

2014 state and federal income taxes are due April 15, 2015 and the library can make your tax experience a little bit easier. Tax forms are available at many libraries. Check with your local library to see if they have the form you need. Both New York State and Federal forms and instructions are available online (see below).

Some of these are in a reproducible format and can be photocopied. Many tax forms for other states can be found online. Click here for more information.
