Tax forms limited at library
YORK COUNTY Taxpayers used to finding an unlimited selection of income tax forms at local libraries may be disappointed this year. The states of North and South Carolina are no longer sending state income tax forms to public libraries.
York County Libraries currently have a limited supply of Internal Revenue Service 1040 forms, and other IRS forms. The amount of publications and forms supplied to area libraries by the IRS has been greatly reduced from last year to encourage electronic filing. Libraries will not be able to order additional forms once supplies are depleted.
South Carolina individual income tax forms are available at the Rock Hill Service Center, 454 S. Anderson Road, Business & Technology Center, suite 202, Rock Hill or by calling 803-324-7641 or at sctax.org. For information on federal tax forms contact the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-829-1040 or irs.gov. Tax information is online at yclibrary.org, including schedules for local sites where AARP and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) are offering free tax filing assistance.
