Looking for tax forms?
The budget for the IRS was cut in 2015 so that they will not be providing libraries many of the forms they have in the past. There will be NO instructions at all, and none of the schedules. We will get the book of reproducible forms. The only forms and publications we will be getting are:
- 1040 A
- 1040 EZ
- Publication 17
You can also visit the following sites below to get all the tax forms you need:
- Free File, tax preparation software available through the IRS website at no cost to those with an adjusted gross income of $57,000 or less.
- Information about often-overlooked tax breaks or credits including the Earned Income Tax Credit for working taxpayers who earn less than $50,270 and the American Opportunity Tax Credit which helps offset the cost of college tuition.
- Tax information for Connecticut residents who suffered losses as a result of Superstorm Sandy, some of which may be deductible.
- Help for those age 60 and older, through the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) Program
- Track the status of your refund.
- If you have specific questions, the IRS provides an online tool to help you find answers. You may also call the IRS for help or go to a local Taxpayer Assistance Center (TAC). The IRS operates two Taxpayer Assistance Centers in the Fourth District; they are in Norwalk and Bridgeport.
