Tax forms and other information can be obtained at the following web sites:
This year (2016) both the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and California Franchise Tax Board (FTB) have experienced major budget reductions. As a result both agencies have made large reductions in the distribution of paper forms and tax materials. Both agencies have reduced the number of forms sent to libraries; in addition the IRS will no longer send instruction booklets or publications to libraries participating in the tax form distribution program. Also, the San Diego IRS office (Federal Building, 880 Front Street, San Diego, CA 92101) will no longer stock forms for public distribution and will no longer provide assistance to low-income or disabled filers. Taxpayers are being directed to the IRS website or the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program) site for assistance.
Central Library (3rd floor) and the North University Community Branch Library have forms, and will distribute the limited number of federal IRS forms given to the Library, while they last.
The Library is not permitted to provide tax advice or assistance of any kind.
