Tax Tips: Where do I find free printable tax forms?

Tax forms are available on the Internal Revenue Service website. In addition to offering tax forms and instructions online, the IRS also offers lots of resources to help you understand your taxes.

The IRS has many publications that educate taxpayers on the tax rules and how they apply to you. These publications are especially helpful for small business owners, as there are often many questions about deductible expenses and retirement plans.

The site also offers a Frequently Asked Questions section that is extremely helpful. In addition, you can search the IRS site for whatever topics interest you. The site is not always easy to navigate, and the search results are not always the most helpful, but all in all, there is a ton of information available for free on the site.
