VITA Tax Help

NOTICE: Due to the federal government shutdown and tax code changes enacted last year, we expect tax filing to be significantly delayed, including the creation of less-used forms and instructions. We also do not yet have printed tax forms.

We provide free copies of the Federal 1040 form in addition to a few Federal business forms like the W2 and W3. Printed tax forms for the current tax year are available at the library in mid to late January if not later.

We do not provide free forms for Iowa State Income Tax but they can be printed for 10 cents per page at the second floor Info Desk. Free forms can be ordered by calling (800) 532-1531. Questions about your state taxes can be directed to the Customer Service line at (800) 367-3388.
