Tax Forms at the Library - 2020
The Newton Public Library receives a limited supply of federal 1040 tax forms and instruction booklets. These are made available to the public on a first come, first serve basis. Tax forms generally arrive at the Library in late January or early February. Please note, the state of Iowa no longer provides the Library with printed Iowa tax forms.
Federal tax forms may also be printed from the IRS website, using library computers. The charge for printing and copying documents at the Library is $0.20 per page for a black and white copy, or $0.50 per page for color.
Federal Tax Forms
The IRS encourages taxpayers to submit their taxes online and makes all IRS tax forms from the current and previous years available through their website.
Following the most expansive tax law changes in 30 years, the IRS introduced a shorter, simpler Form 1040 in 2019. The updated Form 1040 replaced the previous Form 1040 as well as the Form 1040A and the Form 1040EZ. This updated Form 1040 uses a "building block" approach, in which the tax return is reduced to a single form. That form can be supplemented with additional schedules if needed. Taxpayers with straightforward tax situations only need to file this updated 1040 with no additional schedules.
