Usually tax forms have arrived and are out on the government documents shelves and ready for people to use, but this year is different.
The production of some 2012 major tax products, including Form 1040 and the Instructions for Form 1040, has been impacted by the recent passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. There is NO estimate or timeline as to when the products will become available on http://www.irs.gov or distributed in print. Instead, the forms will be available as the documents are published and trickle into the library.
For more information visit the IRS web site at the following URL or use the QR code below:
Update: We have received a good portion of the tax forms to date, but we will continue to receive shipments of 2012 individual income tax forms and schedules over the next 3-4 weeks.
The instructions for Form 1040 are currently in the process of being printed. However, I have been informed that the instructions are available online at http://www.irs.gov/ . When in doubt, check out the online site – they can be viewed/downloaded/printed from there.
