The Peters Township Public Library participates with the IRS and Pennsylvania Department of Revenue to provide a limited number of both Federal and State Tax forms for the convenience of our library patrons. As soon as tax forms/publications become available, we place
them in our Tax Distribution Area located on the second floor of the library.
Federal tax information
The IRS encourages individuals to obtain copies of forms and instructions through the resources listed below. Basic forms, although not the instructions, will be available at the library including forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ. We also will be offering IRS Publication 1132, Reproducible Copies of Federal Tax Forms and Instructions for patrons to make copies at the library. IRS Publication 1132 has not yet arrived at the library.
The majority of shipments to the library of forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040 EZ will begin in mid to late January.

Tickets will be mailed to donors after the blood drive.
