2012 Tax Forms: Print and Online

by Emily Rogers on March 27, 2013 in Government Documents, Odum Library, Reference

We have copies of federal tax 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 reach the forms, instructions, and schedules.

Find links to commonly requested federal forms and publications, including fill-in PDF versions of federal forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ, available at IRS.gov.

Remember that you can also e-file through the IRS web site. Some options are free, and there is also advice for purchasing software or using a commercial preparer.

Unfortunately, our supply of Georgia 500 and 500EZ forms and instruction booklets in print is gone, and no more are available from the state. You’ll need to go online to find Georgia state tax forms. E-filing is an option, but it’s free only for qualified individuals within Georgia. For 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.

Beware: National Invasive Species Awareness Week!

by Emily Rogers on March 1, 2013 in Government Documents, Odum Library, Reference

March 3rd through 9th marks National Invasive Species Awareness Week.

Invasive species include plants and animals that might seem harmless, but are taking over our native habitat. Most of us are familiar with the invasive Southern Crabgrass:

The Burmese Python has earned much attention lately for populating the Everglades National Park and surrounding parts of Florida, where more than 1,800 of the snakes have been removed since January 2000.

Find out what invasive species might be in your back yard with the Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States, supported in part by the University of Georgia, and through this information page about invasive species, courtesy of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  See more information about invasive species–and what you can do–at the Government Documents Exhibit, in the Odum Library Reference Area.
