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 filing deadline is May 17.

Some library locations have the 1040 form booklets and the instructions publication:

  • Bearden 
  • Burlington  
  • Cedar Bluff 
  • Fountain City 
  • Halls 
  • Karns 
  • Lawson McGhee 
  • Mascot 
  • Murphy 
  • North Knoxville 
  • Norwood 
  • Powell 
  • South Knoxville 

The form booklets that we order from the IRS for distribution include 1040 and 1040-SR, and Schedules 1 through 3.

Check for employer forms (such as 1096, 1098, 1099, W2) at office suppliers such as Office Depot and Staples.

The Internal Revenue Service's online filing partners make electronic filing easier; it is free for eligible filers.

This year's free tax prep help is very limited due to COVID-19, but here are the VITA/TCE locations and the AARP locations.

Remember to file Tennessee's Hall income tax if applicable.
