The San Antonio Public Libraries will carry a selection of IRS forms between the months of January and April each year.

The San Antonio Public Library will no longer carry the full selection of IRS forms and publications that it has in previous years.  Due to budgetary restraints imposed by Congress, the only forms being sent to libraries are the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ.  No any other publications or schedules will be sent.

Please call ahead to check that the form you need is available at your library before you go to pick it up. The forms that are available are free. You can view the locations, hours and phone numbers at http://www.mysapl.org/Visit/Locations.aspx.

Ways to get the forms you need:

1. Have them mailed: If you prefer, you can call the IRS at 1-800-TAX-FORM (829-3676) to have the forms mailed to you, or you may place your order online (see: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Forms-and-Publications-by-U.S.-Mail).

2. Print them online: You may also print forms directly from the IRS website at www.irs.gov. Printing is also available for a fee at all libraries.

3.  Pick up forms in person: Forms are available at the local IRS office at 8626 Tesoro Dr. 
San Antonio, TX 78217,  (210) 841-2090.  Tax assistance is now by appointment only. Call in advance for hours and availability of specific forms.

4. Reproducible Notebooks: In addition, usually in late January or early February, most of our locations will also receive the notebook of all IRS forms.  You can find a form in this notebook and copy it on a copy machine in the library. Library copier fees apply.

More Tax Services at your library: The San Antonio Public Library not only offers tax forms, we have partnered with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA), who prepares taxes for free for qualifying residents. More locations for VITA and information can be found at vitasa.org.

SAPL also offers resources to do your own taxes. Please see our Income Tax Resource Guide http://guides.mysapl.org/incometax
