It’s tax time, and library can help with 2016 forms

Posted by Alan on

If you need help in filing your 2016 state and federal income taxes, the library can provide some assistance.

We have federal forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ and their instruction booklets for you to take home. We also have three-ring notebooks that contain instruction booklets and tax forms that you can check out for one week. Check their availability status in the library catalog or ask at the front desk of either branch.

Three-ring notebooks for Missouri income tax forms also are available for you to MAKE COPIES FROM. Available forms include MO-1040, 1040A, 1040P and a variety of others.

If you would like personal assistance in preparing your tax forms, AARP provides free preparation help at several locations in northwest Missouri, including the Belt Branch from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesdays from through April 11. Please call (816) 809-2975 to schedule an appointment. More information is available at

The IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance and the Tax Counseling for the Elderly programs also are offering free tax help for taxpayers who qualify. Sites include InterServe RSVP, 200 Cherokee St., in St. Joseph through April 15 (call 816-238-4511 to make appointments) and Andrew County RSVP, 12737 State Route E, in Savannah through April 11 (call 816-324-5634 to make appointments).

If you want to prepare your taxes yourself, you have a couple of options:

  • You can download and print forms using your computer. Federal forms are available at and Missouri state forms can be found at Use the search box at the top of either page to find the form you need.
