These booklets are available on the New Book shelves located opposite the Mugar Circulation Desk on the first floor. Due to the Patriot’s Day holiday on Monday April 17, Massachusetts tax returns and payments are due on or before Tuesday April 18, 2017.  The U.S. federal tax deadline is also April 18, 2017.

If you don’t pick up the print form, you can also download Massachusetts forms and instructions from the Department of Revenue.

The U.S. government no longer sends tax forms to the library. Tax booklets and instructions are available online from the Internal Revenue Service.
