It's tax season!

You can find federal forms and state forms online. If you need a paper copy, call the Reference Desk at (847) 923-3322 and we can have them ready for you at our Central Library Drive-Up Window. (We have Curbside Pickup at our Hoffman Estates and Hanover Park branches, too.)

If you're looking for filing help, there are options available, often for free dependent on your income level. We've compiled a list of some helpful sources.
