The Iowa Department of Revenue (IDR) no longer provides paper income tax forms and instruction booklets to libraries. This change was part of the IDR’s focus on creating efficiencies through the increased use of technology. Please go to https://tax.iowa.gov/forms, or call 800-532-1531 (281-7239 Des Moines area) for more information and instructions on how to obtain a paper Iowa tax form and instruction booklet. The library is also happy to assist anyone in locating a form online, please stop by the reference desk for assistance.
