Indiana Tax Forms Change

It’s that time of year when we scurry around trying to find our receipts and getting our deductions in order so we can submit our state and federal taxes.

This year, for taxes payable in 2021, we’ve been notified by the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) that they will no longer provide income tax forms or booklets for libraries to distribute.**

DOR is encouraging all customers to file electronically to reduce errors and speed up processing time for returns.  Over 2 million Hoosiers may qualify to file their federal and state taxes electronically for free with Indiana Free File program (INfreefile) which can be accessed online at freefile.dor.in.gov.

The forms are available online and may be printed. You are welcome to use the library computers to print tax forms yourself, or staff at the front desk can provide you with forms you may need. Printing in either case costs 5 cents per side for black and white copies and 20 cents per side for color copies.

Even though taxes for most taxpayers are due by April 15, 2021, you can e-file (electronically file) your taxes earlier. The IRS likely will begin accepting electronic returns anywhere between Jan. 15 and Feb. 1, 2021. 

For more information or federal forms see https://www.irs.gov/ and for Indiana DOR forms see https://www.in.gov/dor/

** We have begun receiving selected federal forms. We have received Forms 1040 which includes 1040-SR for seniors. Schedules 1, 2, 3 and LEP are also included in the booklet. We now also have instructions for the federal forms.
