For the convenience of our patrons, The Watertown Free Public Library carries tax forms each year during tax season. We have begun receiving some of the forms, but many have not yet arrived. The IRS is shipping them to us as they are ready. At this time, we have Massachusetts State Tax Forms, and some Federal forms and schedules. We hope to receive the key forms (1040, 1040A, 1040 EZ) sometime in late January.
Rest assured, all of the pertinent forms are on order, and will be put out for our patrons as soon as they arrive in the building!
Look for our Tax Form Display on the 2nd floor of the library.
