Our Courier Service is Changing

Our courier service is changing!

Our current courier service, which ships books to and from other libraries, has ended its contract with our library consortium.

As the new courier service takes over, there will be a short period of time where books from other libraries will not be available.

Starting on March 15, 2019, any items you request (or have previously requested) from other libraries may not be sent until on or after April 1, 2019.

We apologize for the short notice and the inconvenience.

Tax Forms & Preparation Resources

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. They will not be able to answer tax questions over the phone.
