We have received the 1040EZ tax forms, but have not received any other tax forms for the 2017 tax year yet. While most IRS tax forms, instructions, and publications will be available electronically on IRS.gov by the beginning of the filing season (Jan. 29), the printing and distribution process for printed products takes longer to complete. We usually start receiving the forms in late January through mid February. Click the button below for information regarding tax forms and tax assistance:
