Changes to Tax Forms at the Library

   Friday, December 17th, 2010 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

This year's tax season will be different from past years, due to cost-cutting measures at the IRS and the Massachusetts Department of Revenue. These changes are:

  • The IRS is NOT sending paper forms or instructions to peoples' homes. You can request the IRS send forms to your house by calling 800-829-3676 after January 1st.
  • The state tax booklets this year will only include one copy of the forms - they will NOT include any instructions. The booklets WILL be send to peoples' homes

The library will have reference copies of forms and instructions for patrons to photocopy. Also, all of these forms and instructions will be available online. You can visit the websites below for reference or to print your own copies:

Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of Revenue - Tax Forms

Internal Revenue Service - Tax Forms

The library will still have a (limited) supply, and we'll do our best to fill everyone's tax form needs.

We do plan on offering the AARP Tax-Aide Volunteer again this year, and will begin taking appointments in mid- to late-January. Please contact the Reference Desk with question, and we, try to help you find the resource you need - but remember, library staff is not qualified to offer tax advice.

New Resources Available at the Library

   Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Rosetta Stone Language Learning Database
Rosetta Stone logoAre you taking a trip to Europe, and would like to learn a bit of the language before you go? Would you like to brush up on your high school French? Are you new to this country and are still practicing English?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then the Rosetta Stone Language Learning database is for you. Using an award-winning approach to learning languages, Rosetta Stone teaches through listening comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing, using interactive programs that are both educational and fun. Nine languages are covered, including English (US & UK), French, German, Greek, Italian, Russian, Spanish (Latin American & Spain).

Business & Personal Forms On File
This database contains common personal, business and government forms, ranging from financial aid, real estate, sales, employment, and much more. Access to them is available in the library or at home, 24 hours a day, and the forms are the most up-to-date versions required for legal real estate health and social services, immigration, and other transactions.

Forms can be found by both browsing categories or searching for keywords, and they are available as convenient Adobe PDF files. This single repository is easier and more reliable to search than the internet, and with at-home access no photocopying is needed.

How to Get Started:
Forms on File is provided by the library, Rosetta Stone is being funded by the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium, and both are available to all Chelmsford residents. To log in and start learning from home or in the library, visit our Reference web page. For help, please contact the Reference Desk.
