Tax forms and FREE tax software online!

Tax season is upon us and we've had several people ask us for tax forms at the Reference desk. Although we do not have hard copies of tax forms in bulk, any federal form you may need can be printed from The most frequently requested forms, including 1040 and 1040EZ, are directly linked in the upper left column; if you need a form not listed there, click on "More Forms and Publications," then "Form and Instruction Number."

Louisiana income tax forms can be printed from the state Department of Revenue's website, while forms for all other states are accessible through the Federation of Tax Administrators.

In addition, most students probably qualify for the IRS Free File program, which allows you to use tax preparation software such as TurboTax or H&R Block TaxCut for FREE on your federal tax return! If you use Free File, you will not need any federal forms at all as your return will be e-filed. Free File does not cover your state taxes, so you would still need to file those forms separately.
