It's Tax Season: Government Information Weekly Site

by Emily Rogers on February 8, 2011 in Government Documents, Odum Library, Reference

Three more days! The 2010 filing deadline for federal taxes is now Monday, April 18:  an extension thanks to Emancipation Day, celebrated on April 15 in the District of Columbia. Be careful, though, since the deadline for filing state taxes is still Friday, April 15.

A lot of other changes have come to 2010 taxes, and of course you’ll need to be sure to use the current (2010) forms.  Find links to commonly requested forms and publications, including interactive PDF versions of forms 1040 and 1040EZ, at 1040 Central.  There you’ll also find accessible tax publications available in large print, Braille, and talking formats, answers to frequently asked questions, and Publication 17, “the only tax guide most individuals need,” according to IRS.gov.  For the convenience of filing your tax returns electronically, visit the IRS information for e-file page.

Remember that if you aren’t able to print out forms, or prefer to use pre-printed publications, we have copies of federal forms here at Odum Library, in the Reference area on the second floor.  We can’t advise you on how to complete your tax return, but we can help you get to forms and instructions, and commiserate!

At Odum we also have plenty of Georgia 2010 Individual Income Tax booklets that include 500 and 500EZ forms and instructions. To find online Georgia state income tax forms and further guidance, go to the Georgia Department of Revenue site.  If you need tax publications from other states, check out this interactive map provided by the Federation of Tax Administrators.

Happy filing!
