IRS Tax Forms (in Braille and Text Formats)

This page contains IRS tax forms and instructions in text (.txt) and Braille ready file (.brf) formats. Both formats are bundled together in a ZIP (.zip) file. Text files can be opened or read by any program that reads text, including Microsoft Word and Notepad. This format also works well with screen enlargers, refreshable Braille displays, and screen reading software. The Braille Ready File format is a widely recognized form of contracted Braille that can be read with a refreshable Braille display or embossed to produce high quality hard-copy Braille. Some mobile devices can read .brf files using eBook reading software, contact your software developer to find out if your reading software is compatible. These files are for reference only and cannot be submitted to the IRS in this format.

The .brf files on this page are for embossing purposes only. If you need a Section 508 compliant version of a form, visit the Section 508 Compliant PDF Forms page. If you need a Section 508 compliant version of an instruction, visit the Browser-Friendly Instructions page.
