The IRS has emailed its forms’ providers that the shipment of many of its forms will begin on Friday, January 23, 2015. For those who like to prepare their returns early, this year’s delay of the forms has been a challenge. However, the IRS is scaling back its paper supply. More and more, tax payers will have to transition to electronic solutions. Remember this web address: www.irs.gov. You will need this to locate forms, worksheets, and instructions that will no longer be provided to you in a paper format.
Now for the Illinois forms… Here is the web address for the state: www.revenue.state.il.us and here is the message from the state:
