Fewer IRS forms available at Bellingham Public Library

Due to Internal Revenue Service cutbacks, Bellingham residents seeking printed tax forms will find fewer of them in their public libraries.

Basic forms may be available, but the number will be limited. All income tax materials can be downloaded from the Internet at www.irs.gov/forms. They also can be ordered for delivery by mail at www.irs.gov/orderforms.

Patrons can use library computers, WiFi, and printers to download and print tax materials, and find helpful tax preparation resources.
