Where Do I Pick up Tax Forms?

Federal tax forms are available on the website of the Internal Revenue Service, at IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers and at community locations, such as local libraries, post offices, banks and grocery stores. Taxpayers can also call the IRS and request tax forms by mail.

In addition to providing forms, these locations also offer IRS publication materials that include instructions and advice for filling out the forms and filing taxes. State tax forms may be available from state government websites, which may also offer a paperless e-filing option for both state and federal taxes. The IRS and state tax agencies provide the forms free of cost.
