Tax forms

Today, April 17 (at midnight), is the deadline for filing 2017 federal and state income taxes.

Print copies of the 1040, 1040A and 1040-EZ federal income tax forms for 2017 are on the fourth floor of the library for the taking. So are their respective instruction booklets. We are running low on the 1040 instruction booklet.

You can print most federal forms/publications from the IRS site. Exceptions include:  the 1096, 1099-INT, 1099-MISC, W-2, and W-3.  We have a few 1099-INT and 1099-MISC forms left.

See the lists below to see what you can access through this page. Each form's title links directly to a downloadable version of the form.The checkmark icon tells you it is available in print here. No icon means we don't have the form but you can download it from this page.

Please see Reference desk staff on the fourth floor if you need assistance. Or, phone:  847-376-2841.  Or, email

We have a limited supply (on the fourth floor) remaining of the Illinois 1040 form and Schedule IL-EIC, Illinois Earned Income Credit, and its instructions. We ran out of the Illinois 1040 instruction booklet but it can be read at, or printed from, the Illinois Department of Revenue site.
