SHERIDAN – Tis the season and the Sheridan Public Library will have a limited supply of state and federal tax forms available this year.

Filing starts Jan. 29 this year, but often times the federal and state forms are sent out late to mid-February or later in many instances.

Library director Steve Martin said tax officials do not send out as many copies of all the different tax forms as they used to.

There are so many different types of forms anymore and in the old days, at the end of tax season on April 15, most of the odd forms were just trashed. By not sending so many of so many different types of forms it cuts down on wasting tax dollars.

Martin also said all the different tax forms and their instructions, are available online for easy downloading and printing. And too, a lot of people file electronically and have no need for the paper forms anymore.

Martin reiterates the library will have the basic tax forms but staff will help you download and print any tax form and its instructions for 10¢ a page.

“We should have them by mid-February. What we don’t have in stock, we can get off the internet in a matter of seconds,” Martin said.

The Sheridan Public Library is located at 103 W. First St., Sheridan.

The library is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
