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.

Lawson McGhee Library and some branches have received the 1040 instruction booklets and forms: Forms 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.

The U.S. Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announced that the federal income tax filing due date is automatically extended from April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020. Taxpayers can also defer federal income tax payments due on April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020, without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount owed. This deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers as well as those who pay self-employment tax. What if you miss the filing deadline?

Remember to file Tennessee's Hall income tax if applicable (see this tax guide). The due date for filing and paying the Hall income tax is extended from April 15, 2020 to July 15, 2020.
