Tax Filers Can Find Forms Fast
There may not be enough time left before April 17 for last
minute filers to wait for much-needed tax forms to come in the mail.
So the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) offers the following options
to individuals who need their tax forms fast.
Local participating post offices and banks carry common IRS
forms and instructions. Many local libraries carry a wider variety
of forms and instructions along with reference books of most of the
forms. The forms in the reference books can be reproduced on the
spot, usually for a small fee. Local IRS offices also carry most
forms, instructions, and publications.
And now, taxpayers "surfing the Net" can download and print tax
forms, instructions, and publications from IRIS, the Internal
Revenue Information Service electronic bulletin board.
IRIS can be accessed through the Internet via FedWorld, the
public network for federal government information. All forms on IRIS
can be used just like regular IRS forms.
To dial directly into FedWorld, set modem parity to none, data
bits to 8, stop bit to 1, terminal emulation to ANSI, duplex to
full, and communication software to dial 703-321-8020.
Or, to access the Internet, set the telnet to fedworld.gov
(184.108.40.206). For Internet File Transfer Protocol (FTP) services,
connect to ftp.fedworld.gov (220.127.116.11).
