Many people are asking this question after finding out that federal tax forms and publications are no longer automatically delivered to their house by mail. Don’t fret. There are other ways to get both federal and state forms, including ordering them by phone, printing them from the Internet, or filing them electronically. You can even pick up a wide array of federal tax forms on the second floor of the Central Library. Find out how to access Federal and State tax forms.
Free tax assistance will also be available at many locations throughout Forsyth County. Starting at the end of January, VITA and AARP volunteers will be available to assist you with your income tax returns at several library locations. Find out when and where to get help with your taxes, as well as documentation you must bring.
Public computers are available at any branch of the Forsyth County Public Library. Tax filers who are comfortable accessing the Internet independently can use the library computers to find and print forms, fill forms out online, or E-file their taxes. The Central Library, located in downtown Winston-Salem at 660 W. 5th Street, offers additional options for tax filers needing to use computers.
The Information Services department, located on the second floor of Central Library, provides research computers that tax filers may reserve for a two-hour block of time. To make reservations, call 703-3020 up to a day in advance. Research computers are available all hours that the Central Library is open.
Filers may also drop in the Computer Learning Center (CLC) between 9:00 am to 11:00 am Mondays and Wednesdays. The CLC is located on the first floor of the Central Library.
Please know that Library staff and volunteers do not provide tax assistance or advice. You will be responsible for choosing the forms that are right for you.
