Every year the West Des Moines Public Library does an awesome job putting together a resource on where to find all the information you need about tax forms for both federal and Iowa taxes. The only things that are really different here at Kirkwood is we do NOT carry ANY paper tax forms at either Kirkwood library branch. Also if you have a tax form you need from Kirkwood, it will be available on Eaglenet, but before it will show up you’ll have to fill out the consent form saying you agree to them making it available electronically. If you don’t the form will be mailed to you as a paper copy.

Find links for forms, addresses, etc. here (updated Jan. 2017):

Reminder: The Iowa Department of Revenue has done away with the Iowa Short Form. Both individual tax payers and corporations now have to use what was previously referred to as the long form.

NOTE: Direct deposit is no long available for refunds if you file Iowa state paper tax returns.
