As of March 2015, taxpayers can print free IRS tax forms for the current tax year and prior tax years from the official IRS website. The publications that provide instructions and tables for filing out tax forms are also available for downloading and printing. Individuals interested in using paper forms can find some of the most commonly used forms at public places, such as libraries and post offices.
Taxpayers without access to a printer can use the IRS website to request copies of the tax forms that they need. Applicable publications can also be requested the IRS website and mailed to the taxpayer.
