Carthage Public Library will not be providing pre-printed tax forms or assistance this year. The following information is provided as a courtesy:
Federal Tax forms can be found at https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions
Missouri tax forms can be found at https://dor.mo.gov/forms/
Patrons are welcome to use our internet computers to print tax forms at our standard black & white copy rate of .20 per page. Patrons must pay for everything they print out. It is the patron’s responsibility to find and print the forms they need. Library staff cannot answer tax-related questions or provide assistance other than help with printing.
If you need assistance with taxes, free income tax return preparation & e-file services will be available through Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) at Fairview Christian Church, 2320 S Grand Ave, Carthage, MO 64836. This is a free service for low to medium income taxpayers, prepared & e-filed by volunteers trained by the IRS. Appointments are necessary. Call Zelma at 417-388-7609 to make an appointment.
