Worthington Libraries is a great place to find tax information. Every year, all library locations receive a large selection of the most popular tax forms from both the state and federal governments. Internet access makes finding additional forms quick and easy. You can also take advantage of the library's Internet computers to file your federal and state taxes online. While library staff cannot prepare taxes or answer specific tax-related questions, they can assist you in locating the information you need.
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 2013 tax return, use a 2014 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.
Every year Worthington Libraries participate in the IRS Tax Forms Outlet Program (TFOP). Our goal is to provide print versions of the most popular and requested forms. Since we do not receive all forms from all agencies, we often rely on the following websites to provide additional materials.
Federal tax law is compiled in Title 26 of the United States Code, available on the Web. Please note the tax code is written in specialized legal language and may not be accessible to the average reader.
