TFOP News and Updates
TFOP Alert: 11/12/2015
Subject: TFOP Filing Season Update
Thank you for your continued support of our Tax Forms Outlet Program. Because of you, we are able to provide tax assistance to individuals who otherwise might not receive the help they need.
Every year, we see an increase in the number of taxpayers using software to prepare their federal tax returns. Last filing season, 95 percent of taxpayers filed their tax returns electronically. As a result, the number of program products continues to decrease.
We have made some changes to TFOP this year. We will e-mail all TFOP participants an order form in mid-November, offering two ordering options. We are unable to offer any additional products. When you receive your order form, please select the option that best meets your needs for the filing season.
|Option 1*||Option 2*|
Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return
Instructions for Form 1040
Form 1040 A, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return
Form 1040 EZ, Income Tax Return for Single and Joint Filers with No Dependents
Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax (For Individuals)
Publication 4604 (EN/SP), Use the Web for IRS Tax Products & Information
TFOP Poster Package contains four posters:
- Which tax form fits you? - Helps taxpayers determine which form to file.
- Need Tax Help? - Directs taxpayers to resources for forms and assistance.
- Where Should I Send my Tax Return? - Provides mailing addresses for filing tax returns.
- Tax Forms This Way - Directs taxpayers to the tax forms display
We did not include Publication 1132, Reproducible Tax Forms, in either of the options above. While we did not make the decision lightly to eliminate Publication 1132, we understand it may affect you and some of your customers.
Contact the IRS TFOP Administrator if you need assistance. Include your TFOP account number to help us identify your account.
