Pick up or print tax forms at select libraries

The 1040 form and Instructions for the 1040 form are available at all library locations offering curbside service. To get the forms, please walk up and ask for them during curbside service hours. Find curbside hours for your library by visiting the location page.

Some curbside locations allow you to request tax forms through the myLIBRO app. Find locations that offer tax form pickup here. Learn how to schedule a curbside pickup appointment in this blog post.
