Tax preparation

The Internal Revenue Service website posts all the forms and publications that you need for filing, or you can order forms and publications sent to you by mail. The Lawson McGhee Library has forms and instruction booklets for 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. Some branch locations may have some of these basic forms, as well.

The Internal Revenue Service's online filing partners make electronic filing easier; it is free for eligible filers. Free online tax preparation for eligibile filers is offered through the United Way of Greater Knoxville in partnership with MyFreeTaxes.

Some free tax preparation services are available in the community for qualified individuals, by appointment or walk-in. Look below for a list, or you can search for one on the IRS website.

Remember to file Tennessee taxes if applicable (interest from bonds and notes and dividends from stock). Do you also need to file in other states?

What if I miss the April 18, 2017 filing deadline?
