When you are preparing your taxes, inevitably you run across a form or publication that you need in order to complete your filing.  But where can you find all these forms and publications?

The IRS recently published their Tax Tip 2014-06, which details information about where you can find these forms and publications.  The actual text of the Tip follows below.

The IRS offers free tax forms and publications on many topics.  Here are four easy ways to get the tax products you need from the IRS:

  1. On the Internet.  Get everything you need 24 hours a day 7 days a week on To view and download tax products, click on the ‘Forms and Pubs’ tab.  Many products appear online before they’re available on paper.
  2. Order by phone.  Call 1-800-TAX-FORM (1-800-829-3676) Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time.  Hours of service in Alaska and Hawaii follow Pacific Time.  You’ll typically receive your order by mail within 7 to 10 days.
  3. In IRS Offices.  Get the tax products you need at IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers across the country.  Visit to find the nearest IRS Center.  Select the ‘Help and Resources’ tab, and then click on ‘Contact Your Local IRS Office.’ Use the ‘Office Locator’ tool to search for the closest office by zip code.  You can also select your state for a list of offices and services available at each office.
  4. In Your Community.  Many libraries and post offices offer free tax forms during the tax filing season.  Some libraries also have copies of common IRS publications.
