Why does e=mc2: (and why should we care?) by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw
Because forms are so readily-available online, the Canton Public Library will severely limit the number of tax forms we provide in paper format and encourage patrons to print forms from the IRS and Michigan sites at home or in the library for a cost of $.10 per page. Instruction booklets will be provided for use in the library only.
For further information about forms you may contact:
Federal [website] or by phone at 1-800-829-3676 after January 10
