Individual Tax Return Due Date April 15

Where can I get tax forms at the Morris Library?

We have fewer tax forms available this year for the public and a limited supply. We have forms 1040EZ, 1040A, and 1040. In addition, we have a binder of reproducible tax forms at the Information Desk and the 2014 tax guide (we only have one copy of the tax guide). You will have to sign out the binder or the 2014 tax guide and make copies of the forms or information you would need.  Furthermore, the Paul Simon Federal Building in Carbondale has zero tax forms this year and the closest federal building with tax forms in in Mt. Vernon.  


How else can I get tax forms?

Federal Forms

IL State Forms

The State of IL urges all taxpayers to file their state income tax returns online. Fewer paper forms will be printed and distributed.  Supplies of state tax forms at libraries are very limited if not totally depleted.

Advantages of online filing are:

·         Calculations are done for you–no math errors

·         No chance you’ll forget to attached required schedules

·         You’ll receive confirmation that your return was received by DOR

·         Faster refunds–even faster with direct deposit

·         Environmentally friendly

·         File now, pay later–up to April 15, 2014

·         It’s secure

Find these links and more information about e-file methods at

You may also print forms from the website of Illinois Department of Revenue at

Other States

Use the Federation of Tax Administrators website to find links to tax forms for any US state.
