Worthington Libraries is a great place to find tax information. While library staff cannot prepare taxes or answer specific tax-related questions, they can assist you in locating the information you need. We offer a suite of tax services as well as many print and online resources.
Every year Worthington Libraries participate in the IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP). Changes from TFOP in 2016 mean we're receiving fewer tax forms in print.
We will be relying on the following websites to provide additional materials.
The following books are published annually. They come from commercial sources and not a government agency. They are designed to provide basic tax information to the general public. Remember the dates on these publications run a year ahead of the forms, so when filling out a 2015 tax return, use a 2016 tax guide. If you cannot locate copies of these in the Library, please inquire at the Information Desk. It is possible that reference copies may be available for use in the Library.
Federal tax law is compiled in Title 26 of the United States Code. Cornell University Law School provides an online version of U.S. Code: Title 26 - Internal Revenue Code. Please note the tax code is written in specialized legal language and may not be accessible to the average reader.

The resources listed in these guides are good places to begin your research, but they represent only some of the materials available at the Library. If you wish to explore these topics further or if you have any questions, please Ask Us!
