Looking for copies of federal, state, or local tax forms? Need tax planning guides? The Library has a wide range of resources that can help answer these questions—and more.
The Information and Reference Department has current copies of many federal individual tax forms, either for free distribution or for photocopying. In addition to federal forms, the department distributes State of Ohio tax forms. City of Cincinnati tax forms are available for customers to photocopy. Most tax forms are for individuals, but selected forms for corporations, small businesses, and non-profit organizations are also available.
During tax season, selected copies of current tax forms are available for both reproduction and free distribution at all branch libraries.
Customers may also use the free Internet access at all 41 library locations to access all federal, state, and local tax forms and publications available online. Additional tax websites are listed in the Taxes subject area of the Library’s Government Resources webpage.
