Where Can I find Forms and Publications
From the IRS
“Ten days before the expected launch of the 2014 tax season, the U.S. Congress voted to reduce the IRS’ operating budget by 10 percent. The IRS is now grappling with a $400 million dollar cut in its operating budget. This is addition to funding cuts that resulted in its 15 per cent reduction of workforce in previous years.
In order to balance its budget with no time to spare, the IRS decided to stop the paper production and distribution of all its instruction booklets for the 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms.”
What Can You Do?
If you live in Newburgh or New Windsor, you can call Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney’s office at 845-561-1259 or write to 123 Grand St., Newburgh, NY 12550 to voice your opinion on these cutbacks.
