The Mercer Library will not be receiving paper copies of many tax forms for the 2015 season. We expect to receive only limited copies of basic forms and instructions. As of 3/1/2016, we have copies of the state and federal basic forms: Wisconsin Form 1, 1A, WI-Z, rent certificate and Homestead forms and instruction books; and federal 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ forms and some instruction books.
We also have a copy of many other forms for duplication, and can assist you in finding the form you need online. Please don't hesitate to stop by and ask. The cost to print most forms and instructions is 10 cents per page.
If you shop at Amazon.com here's how you can support the library at the same time. Start by visiting Amazon Smile at smile.amazon.com and tell Amazon that you want to support Friends of the Mercer Public Library. Then, every time you shop at Amazon Smile, a portion of the proceeds will benefit your library. It's that easy!
