Tax Information: 2017 Update

As a public service, the Cobb County Public Library System (CCPLS) provides some tax forms starting after December 27. The CCPLS cannot guarantee availability of tax forms. Please contact your local library to determine what forms are available there. CCPLS libraries try to keep copies of commonly used forms. Copies of some publications may be made for 15¢ a page. Forms may also be obtained by visiting local state and federal tax agency offices or by downloading them from the IRS or Georgia Department of Revenue websites.

We are not authorized to answer tax questions, including questions about tax forms or their preparation.
