Tax Season Info

We typically receive IRS paper tax forms in late January to early February.  Michigan tax forms will be mailed to libraries after they have been mailed to taxpayers who used paper forms last year. We hope to receive Michigan tax forms by mid-February, but no firm date has been set.  Staff at the Help Desk can help you obtain other tax forms online. (15 cents per page)

Federal filing usually begins January 15.

2020 Federal and State tax returns must be postmarked no later than [date to be determined] 2021.
