No Tax Forms

I’m sorry, we do *not* have Tax Forms. In an effort to save money, our government has chosen not to send out tax forms to the smaller libraries for the past few years. We *do* have numbers you can call or you can get on www.irs.gov and print them out.

1*800*829*3676 Federal

1*785*688*8222 Kansas

Libraries are the heartbeat of every community.
