[Libs-Or] tax forms

I posted the information about the cutbacks to TFOP on LIBS-OR a couple of weeks ago:

They did specifically mention that form instructions were not going to be sent. Giving patrons the option to order directly from the IRS is one option, but in general, support for paper delivery of tax publications is very minimal right now, due to appropriations cuts to the IRS.

I would suggest directing frustrated patrons to give their member of Congress, since they control the purse strings!

Also, send your stories to the ALA Washington Office, since they are another avenue for advocacy with Congress. Contact info:

Subject: [Libs-Or] tax forms

It's time for my traditional, annual, tax form gripe/inquiry.

As of 2/2/2015, we have received #340 1040EZ forms, #500 1040A forms, and PUB 17

Supposedly, TFOP has #500 1040 forms in transit.

This isn't even a close approximation of the initial order.

Our patrons are not exactly overjoyed.

Has anyone received booklets or will there be no booklets?

Any suggestions on soothing the masses?
