A word about IRS forms arrival

The 2010 IRS Tax forms are now finally, but very slowly, arriving at the library.  Because of the late approval of the 2010 Tax Bill in Congress, the printing has been delayed.  We are not expecting to have a full collection of forms until late in January 2011.  Please come in or call us at 281-376-4610 for the latest  arrivals.  Also see the irs.gov website on the Internet.
