The Taxman Cometh

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
The Beatles

Are you an individual who lives on the edge ... by waiting to the last minute to file your tax returns? Still need a form?

You can print forms out from the Internal Revenue Service website ( and the website of the California Franchise Tax Board ( The Library Staff cannot answer your tax questions (some of us can’t do our own returns!) ... however, contact info from each agency’s website is posted below:
