You may contact Connecticut AARP for information on other Tax-Aid
locations in our state. No tax help is available at the library. Members of the library's staff are not trained
to advise you on your tax returns or on the appropriate tax forms to use, but we are happy to help you locate
needed forms in the library or online.

The U.S. Post Office no longer stocks tax forms. As a service to our patrons, the Windsor Locks
Public Library is happy to provide access to both State and Federal tax forms and instructions. During the months of
January, February, and March the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and the CT Department of Revenue Services
send us many of the most requested forms and instruction booklets for distribution to our patrons.
These are available free of charge at the library. Due to space constraints we are unable to
provide paper copies of every form that might be requested, so we also offer reproducible copies of most
U.S. and State tax forms. These may be copied in the library for $ .20 per page.
All of the State and Federal tax forms and instructions are also available online
and may be printed out at home or in the library. Click on the links below for complete listings of state and
federal forms. We charge $ .20 per page for printing.
Many of these forms are in PDF (portable document) format, and accessing them requires the Adobe
Acrobat Reader. This software may be downloaded and installed on your home computer for free from
Current and prior years' federal tax forms and information may be accessed at the
IRS Forms and Publications page.
Forms and instructions for the State of Connecticut are available at the
CT Department of Revenue
Current year forms and instructions for any state in the U.S. can be downloaded from
Federation of Tax Administrators. If you need a
tax lawyer or have legal questions related to your tax filings,
FindLaw.com may provide some helpful resources.
Please remember that although your library staff is willing and able to help you
locate any tax forms or instructions that you might need, we are not trained to
answer specific questions about your tax returns or to recommend forms. Consult your
a trained tax preparer for information about your returns.
