The IRS continues to urge taxpayers who haven’t yet done a “Paycheck Checkup” to do one as soon as possible to see if they’re having their employer withhold the right amount of tax after major changes in the tax law. The IRS Withholding Calculator can help taxpayers learn if they need to make changes soon to avoid an unwelcome surprise come tax time.

The IRS provides libraries with common Federal tax forms and publications such as:

  • Form 1040 and Instructions
  • Form 1040 EZ
  • MA Resident State Forms
  • Federal Forms

Other Massachusetts forms can be obtained online. Telephone help is available from the Andover IRS office at 978 474–5549, and IRS Telephone Assistance 1 800 829–1040. Library staff are not able to provide tax help.
