Yes, we do have IRS State of Georgia tax forms at your public library. The public library is the only location besides a local IRS office for the public to obtain their tax forms. Recently, the Rossville Public Library received several boxes of the highly requested State of Georgia tax booklet and other Internal Revenue Service tax forms. You can pick up your IRS tax forms inside the lobby area of the public library. If you do not find the tax form that you are looking for, please ask one of the library staff at the main desk for assistance. You may search the IRS website at www.irs.gov to print a tax form or call the IRS to request a form or publication at (800) 829-3676.
