> TFOP Filing Season Update
> While we had committed to waiting until next year to making changes to the
> Tax Forms Outlet Program, the situation has changed. As you may be aware,
> IRS appropriations were significantly cut in the 2015 Omnibus
> Appropriations bill recently passed by Congress. Unfortunately this puts
> us in a position where we have very few options. We want to honor our
> commitment to you by providing some key products, but we cannot deliver
> nearly what we have in the past.
> For this filing season, we will offer the following products:
> - Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ
> - Publication 17, one reference copy for each participant (Taxpayers
> will be able to access Publication 17 in English and Spanish online from
> irs.gov/Pub17 and, new this year, it will also be available as a free
> e-Pub for downloading from IRS.gov and viewing on most e-Readers and
> other mobile devices.)
> - Publication 4604 (EN/SP), Use the Web for IRS Tax Products &
> - Publication 1132, Reproducible Copies of Federal Tax Forms and
> - The TFOP Poster Package which includes:
> o Publication 1169, Need Tax Help?
> o Publication 1258, Where Should I Send This?
> o Publication 1309, Tax Forms This Way Publication
> o Publication 1725, If The Form Fits...Use It!
> No additional products will be available through the TFOP Program. We will
> not be sending Form 8635-S, Supplement to Form 8635.
> We will fill orders for Forms 1040 and 1040A with the quantities you
> requested on your order form earlier this year. Because Form 1040EZ was
> not on this year's order form, we will send you 75% of your Form 1040 A
> order quantity. For example, if you ordered 3000 Form 1040 A, we will send
> you 2250 Form 1040EZ. It is not necessary for you to place an order for
> Form 1040EZ; we will automatically ship Form 1040EZ to you once the form
> becomes available.
> Unfortunately, we are unable to offer Instructions for Forms 1040, 1040A
> and 1040EZ. Your patrons can obtain copies of Instructions through:
> - IRS.gov/Forms <http://www.irs.gov/Forms-&-Pubs> - to view and
> - IRS.gov/orderforms <http://www.irs.gov/orderforms> - to order tax
> products to be delivered by mail
> - 1-800-829-3676 - to order tax products to be delivered by mail
> The decision to reduce the number of tax products available to our TFOP
> partners was not made lightly. We realize this decision is not ideal and
> we understand it may impact you and your customers. Please offer
> Publication 4604 (EN/SP) to your patrons to help guide them to tax products
> and information available on IRS.gov. We apologize for these late program
> Thank you for your support,
