Community Based Outlet Program (CBOP)
The IRS and local community organizations across the country are working together to increase the availability of federal tax forms, publications, and other tax products. After joining the program we will send you free tax products that provide tax information for your employees or the public.
Note: Using the Internet you can access IRS Forms and Publications to search, print or download tax products 24 hours a day. This is the fastest and most timely method to obtain tax products.
Our partners are:
Corporations - Large businesses (100+ employees) are encouraged to give employees a perk - electronic tax forms at work. Help your company join this program.
Copy Centers/Office Supply Stores - Offer customers a wide variety of reproducible federal tax products. Your customers can copy the products they need.
Local Governments - If the public has access to your photocopy machines or a computer with a printer, you can provide a valuable service to local citizens. IRS will provide reproducible tax products that can be copied by the public as needed.
Credit Unions - Credit Unions can load Publication 1796, IRS Tax Products DVD, onto their Internet site or provide a link to the IRS Forms and Publications web page. Members can then obtain tax products through the credit union's Internet site.
Grocery Stores/Pharmacies - Provide your patrons with an added service - Tax Forms. Using self-service copy machines you can provide tax forms to customers.
