Taxes and tax forms

Federal tax forms

All three Hood River County Library District locations provide tax forms. We have the following forms:

  • 1040 + instructions
  • 1040A + instructions
  • 1040EZ + instructions

Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, the IRS will not be sending us copies of forms other than these, including the schedules. If you need other forms or instructions, library staff are happy to help you find any federal or state tax forms you need. Federal tax forms can be downloaded from the Internal Revenue Service website. Forms not carried by the library cost 10 cents per page for printing.

Oregon tax forms

Unfortunately, the State of Oregon does not send tax forms to public libraries. However, library staff are happy to help you find the forms you need. Forms not carried by the library cost 10 cents per page for printing. Forms can be downloaded from the Oregon Department of Revenue website. You may also call 800-356-4222 (inside Oregon) or 503-378-4988 (outside Oregon) to have the forms mailed to your home or business.

Help finding tax forms

Library staff are happy to help you find the forms you need. Just contact or visit any of our locations for assistance. You can also download tax forms online:

If you need paper forms and the libraries do not carry them, you may also call to have forms mailed to your home or business

Tax preparation assistance

If you’d like to prepare your taxes online yourself, library computers are available for preparing your taxes through any number of online programs, including the IRS’s Free File program. CASH Oregon also has information on free tax services.

While library staff aren’t able to offer tax advice, we are fortunate to have the Mid-Columbia AARP’s Tax-Aide Program. This program provides free tax preparation to low- and moderate-income families, with special emphasis on individuals 60 years and over. Tax-Aide is held on Mondays from 2.00 to 7.00p, from February 1 to April 11, 2016, in the meeting room at Hood River Library.

Here is a full list of the locations for AARP Tax-Aide in the Mid-Columbia Gorge/North Central Oregon. Tax Aide sites operate from February through April 15.
