TFOP Alert: IRS Forms and Publications Update
On January 4, the IRS announced that the 2018 tax filing season would begin on January 29. The IRS set the opening date to ensure the security and readiness of key tax processing systems in advance of the opening and to assess the potential impact of recent tax legislation on 2017 tax returns.
We are currently working to finalize the forms and instructions to reflect the legislation which passed in late December. As a result, some shipments may come later than normal.
While most IRS tax forms, instructions and publications will be available electronically on IRS.gov by the beginning of the filing season (Jan. 29), the printing and distribution process for printed products takes longer to complete.
We understand that you may have questions about when tax products will be delivered to your location. We are establishing dates for printing and distributing product orders. As soon as shipping information is available, we will send a TFOP Alert and update the TFOP Shipping Chart on IRS.gov.
TFOP Alert 10/31/2017
Thank you for your continued support of our Tax Forms Outlet Program. Because of you, we can provide federal tax forms to individuals who might not otherwise have access to paper tax forms or online services.
Each year we see an increase in the number of taxpayers using tax preparation software to prepare and file their federal tax returns. Therefore, you should reduce the quantity of tax forms (and Instructions) you order for the upcoming filing season.
TFOP Order Form - Form 8635
We apologize for the delay in sending the order form. We will email the 2017 Form 8635 today.
Please complete and return the order form to email@example.com by November 10.
If you have not received the order form by November 3, contact the TFOP Administrator at WI.TFOP.Administrator@irs.gov. On the subject line of your email, type, “Didn’t Receive Form 8635” and your TFOP account number.
Change to Form 8635
We removed the quantity drop down choices. You can now simply type the quantity you need in the appropriate space to the right of each tax form and Instruction.
