Tax Forms and Information

The Auburn Public Library requests from the Internal Revenue Service individual tax forms — Form 1040 and Form 1040-SR — along with Form 1040 and Form 1040-SR Instructions each year.  The 2021 federal forms are now available, on a first-come, first served basis.  (Just come up to the 2nd floor.)  If you prefer curbside, when you arrive at the library, please contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4.

We no longer receive any supplemental forms and Schedules from the IRS, but they are available for downloading and printing on the IRS website (click on Forms and Publications, below).  For customers who cannot access a printer, we will print individual schedules and forms for free.  If a customer would like the corresponding instructions for the supplemental forms and schedules, we can print them at the rate of .10 cents per page.

The State of Maine no longer distributes Form 1040ME, nor Instructions for same.  Again, customers may access the forms online as referenced below; if a customer needs a print copy but has no access to a printer they may request us to print Form 1040ME; if requested, we will print the corresponding instructions at the expense of the customer — .10 cents per page.

The Internal Revenue Service is encouraging taxpayers to use IRS online tools if possible so that individuals may keep themselves safe as the pandemic continues.
