(Cleveland)- It’s almost tax filing time and in the past both branches of White County Public Library have offered an extensive supply of tax forms and people have come to expect those forms will be there. Well, not this year. With the recent budget cuts at the Internal Revenue Service they have decreased the amount of printed forms that they will make available.
Michael Humphrey, Program Manager for White County Public Libraries said they have been informed that the forms they will receive have been cut to just three versions the 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ. But, he admits he doesn’t know when those will be available
Humphrey advises those needing forms should go online and download them. Above all he says please don’t be upset with them for the lack of forms , “ this is nothing of the library’s choice, this is not us deciding that its available online just go there, this is something that came from the IRS,” said Humphrey.
He said,” in the past this is a service that the public library was able to offer, which we will not be able to offer, because they are not providing it to us.”
