Tax Time: Online resources for filing 2015 Taxes

Our library phones have already been ringing with questions about the availability of both federal and Wisconsin state tax forms for 2015 filing. Paper tax forms have been ordered and we hope to see them begin arriving at the Boscobel L:ibrary by the end of January, although every year's different depending on the IRS's and State of Wisconsin's  shipment schedules.

Don't want to wait a minute longer? We recommend that you consider e-filing. Both state and federal tax agencies are encouraging people to complete their tax preparation online- its faster, easier and more accurate. The library has eight high speed Internet, public access computer stations available for you to use if you don't have Internet access at home. Please keep in mind that  library staff are not able to assist with actual tax preparation. If you need help figuring out your taxes, you can consult  a local professional tax preparer or find out if you are eligible for free tax preparation help by checking with: Volunteer Income Tax Assistance .

If filing online isn't your cup of tea but you still want your forms ASAP, you can use any Internet connected computer to download and print out the tax forms you need. Explore the following resources for more information:
  • State of Wisconsin Department of Revenue : this site allows you to search for the Wisconsin state tax forms you need, file online and do additional research for tax questions you may have. There's also contact information to get assistance with filing.
  • Internal Revenue Service online : One stop shopping for all Federal tax return forms, e-filing access, questions about tax forms, tax preparation assistance and information guides,  Affordable Care Act resources and much more to help you navigate the tax preparation process.
