Tax Forms

KCKPL locations only carry limited federal tax forms and NO state forms or federal schedules or instruction books. You can order federal form by mail using the IRS's online request form or by calling (800)-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676). Pre-printed Kansas tax forms are unavailable.

Forms also can be printed by going to the IRS website and the Kansas Department of Revenue web site. Don’t have a printer at home or want help printing? You can come into a KCKPL location and print the forms for 10 cents a page. Below are links to some of the most commonly used IRS and Kansas forms.
