2013 Tax forms are located on the main level of the Library, west of the Information Desk and Microfilm machines along the back wall (east of the Fiction shelves). (Info Desk: 920-832-6177)
- Tax forms and instructions are first-come, first-served; we cannot set aside documents for you.
- The WI Department of Revenue and the IRS only send select forms to us; however, you can access and print any state or federal forms from home. You may also use a computer on the Library's upper level by logging in with your Library Card number. Printing is 15 cents per print in black and white; a front-and-back printout is 30 cents.
- Tax forms and instructions that the Library obtains from the WI Department of Revenue and the IRS are for individual use and are not a source for tax preparers to take multiple copies.
* Appleton Public Library staff are not accountants or tax attorneys; they cannot provide tax assistance or advise you on which forms you need.
AARP volunteers are in Lower Level Meeting Room C for morning appointments and afternoon walk-ins each Tuesday, beginning February 4 through April 15. Volunteers very strongly recommend you call for an appointment: 920-215-1040.
