LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston Public Library has participated in the U.S. Treasury Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP) as a service to the community for many years. Through this program, public libraries and other agencies received income tax forms and instruction booklets to make available to the public.
Although the program has been downsized in the past few years, the library still receives the basic “1040 family” of forms. The notice below was transmitted to the library this week:
Internal Revenue Service
Information About Your Tax Forms
The IRS is reviewing The Bipartisan Budget Act enacted on February 9, 2018, that retroactively extended and modied numerous tax provisions covering 2017. As most tax forms were printed for distribution prior to the signing of new legislation, we recognize this may impact some tax forms ordered. To ensure you have the latest version of the tax product, we strongly encourage you to visit IRS.gov for updates on the implementation of this law.
Updated versions of tax forms will only be available on IRS.gov.
Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience.
If you already picked up forms from the Library, you should check to be sure they are the most updated version. You can check yourself by going to www.irs.gov, and look for the Forms & Publications tab. These are two items you should check:
Recent Developments: Correction to the 2017 Instructions for Form 1040
Other Items You May Find Useful: All Form 1040 Revisions
A Librarian will be happy to assist you if you need help to check online. Just remember that Librarians cannot answer tax questions. You need to consult a trained tax preparer or contact the IRS with questions.
