Fiscal Cliff and Tax Forms

The United States government did not fall off the first ledge of the fiscal cliff, but the IRS is scrambling to play catchup with the tax forms.    According to the IRS, “the production of some 2012 major tax products, including the Form 1040 and the Instructions for Form 1040, is impacted by the recent passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.  At this time, we do not have an estimate as to when products will become available on IRS.gov or in print.”    See this link on IRS.gov for additional information.  More information will be forthcoming. www.irs.gov/uac/Newsroom/IRS-statement-on-tax-legislation-recently-passed-by-Congress

That’s the bad news.  The good news is that we have received paper copies of the Colorado tax forms.  These are available on the 3rd floor of Norlin Library in the Government Information Library.    As we receive forms we will be updating our Tax Form page.

January 9, 2013 Update: The IRS will begin accepting tax returns on January 30, 2013, for taxpayers filing Form 1040. For a list of forms delayed until February or March, consult the list at the IRS website.
