IRS Saves $10 million not sending Tax Forms


The IRS is not going to mail income tax forms this year. One of the main reasons is to cut costs. It is estimated that the IRS will be saving about $10 million in postage and publication costs by doing away with tax forms. In view of this, you have to download the forms yourself from the IRS website, Alternatively, you can obtain the forms from your local IRS offce or call 800-TAX-FORM and they will be mailed to you. However, be prepared for a lengthy wait. The IRS has been inundated with requests for tax forms and has not been able to send them out as quickly as the requests come in. For the most part, the IRS would not be able to mail you your forms before February 14.

There are other pertinent matters regarding your taxes this year. Firstly, the deadline for submitting your tax returns has been changed to April 18. This is to take into consideration that April 15 (the usual tax submission deadline) is Emancipation Day, a public holiday in Washington DC.
