Forms and Publications By U.S. Mail

You can order many of the current year tax forms and publications for delivery by U. S. mail. Be aware that not all tax products are available through this web page and that quantities are limited. Information Returns (all series of Forms W-2, W-3, 1096, 1098, 1099, and 5498), and employer products can be ordered from the Online Ordering for Information Returns and Employer Returns page. If you cannot locate a tax product, or need a prior year tax product, visit the Forms and Publications page to download products or call 1-800-829-3676 to place your order.

You may order up to 10 different products for delivery by U.S. mail. You will receive two copies of any form that you order and one copy of any publication. (If you need more than the quantity allowed with this service, please call 1-800-829-3676 to place your order.) Applicable instructions are automatically added to all forms orders, but are not available to order separately. When you have finished selecting items, you may proceed to checkout.

The search box below will perform a simple search of exactly what you have entered (ignoring upper and lower case differences). For example, if you wish to find Form 2441 - Child and Dependent Care Expenses, you could search for 2441, child, dependent, etc.

Normally, you should allow 7 to 15 days for processing and delivery. However, during the months of December and January, delays in processing and delivery can be expected due to product availability.

Note: December 1 is the cut-off date for determining current year tax products. For example, Any orders placed on or after December 1, will receive the current year’s tax product. Any order placed prior to December 1 of the calendar year will receive the prior year’s tax product (i.e., If you ordered in November 2008, you will receive the 2007 tax product and orders placed on or after December 1, 2008 will receive 2008 tax products).
