Tax forms

The redesigned 2018 federal 1040 form has arrived and is out for the taking in the income tax forms area on the fourth floor of the library. So are the 1040 instructions.

Please note:  As a result of a major tax law overhaul, there no longer is a federal 1040A form nor a 1040EZ form. The 2018 federal 1040 form is part of a booklet, which also contains:  

  • Schedule 1 - Additional Income and Adjustments to Income
  • Schedule 2 - Tax
  • Schedule 3 - Nonrefundable Credits
  • Schedule 4 - Other Taxes
  • Schedule 5 - Other Payments and Refundable Credits
  • Schedule 6 - Foreign Address and Third Party Designee

Other federal forms remain on order, including the 1099-MISCELLANEOUS.

You can print the federal 1040 form for 2018 and its instructions at:   And, you can order federal forms from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) online at:  If you need assistance, Reference desk staff can help you place your order.

We do not know when the 2018 Illinois income tax forms will arrive.

Feel free to call the Reference desk:  847-376-2841. Or, email:
