Due to IRS budget cuts, the library will receive only small numbers of basic federal tax forms and general PA tax forms. Patrons can obtain more copies and copies of instructions through:
•IRS.gov/Forms - to view and download
•IRS.gov/orderforms - to order tax products to be delivered by mail
•1-800-829-3676 - to order tax products to be delivered by mail
Right now we have some PA state and federal forms. We unfortunately have no control over what we receive or when we receive it, but we can print out forms for you for 15 cents a page.
We’ve received many inquiries about providing tax help. Librarians are not able to help you do your taxes. Local services available include:
•The Open Link - Call 215-679-6550 to make an appointment (for low-income adults over 60, limited slots)
•Keystone Tax Service on Main Street in Pennsburg - for a fee.
Did you know a portion of the proceeds from The Community Thrift Shop go to the library?!
It's true! Please support The Community Thrift Shop at 301 Fourth Street in Pennsburg by shopping or donating clothes, furniture, sports equipment, and household items. Also, they always need volunteers to sort donations or run the cash register (flexible hours).
