Key Information for Taxpayers


The Filing Deadline is Monday, April 15, 2019

The IRS has announced that the 2019 filing season will begin on Jan. 28, 2019, for individual taxpayers. The IRS began accepting business tax returns (non-1040 series) on Jan. 8.

For Tax Year 2018, you will no longer use Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ, but instead will use the redesigned Form 1040. Many people will only need to file Form 1040 and no schedules. However, if your return is more complicated (for example you claim certain deductions or credits, or owe additional taxes) you will need to complete one or more of the new Form 1040 Schedules.

The IRS will provide the following printed 2018 tax form/instruction products to libraries throughout the county. Please contact your local branch to find out if forms and booklets have arrived. In addition, the Bedford Branch (734 847 6747) and the Ellis Library & Reference Center (734 241 5277) have several of the 1096, 1098, 1099, W2 and W3 forms that are not available to print from the online site. 

  • Form 1040
  • Instruction booklet for 1040
  • Schedules 1-6 for use with the 1040

Since the IRS is not printing any other forms or instructions, they are providing a Reproducible Booklet to libraries. In addition, all forms, instructions, and publications are available online at
