Hot Docs: Where are the tax forms???

Delayed Legislation, Printing, & Delivery of 2010 Tax Products

On December 17, the President signed the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010. The printing and distribution of many forms were delayed pending the approval of this legislation and only recently began. These products include Form 1040, Form 1040A, Instructions 1040, and Instructions 1040A, as well as many others.  The Government Printing Office is working now to accomplish the quick delivery of tax products. Please be advised that the Government Documents Department will make these forms and booklets available to you as soon as they arrive. In the meantime, please check for online forms if you are unable to wait for the paper form deliveries.

Who Must Wait to File (Yes, some of us won’t be allowed to file until mid to late February!)

For most taxpayers, the 2011 tax filing season starts on schedule. However, tax law changes enacted by Congress and signed by President Obama in December mean some people need to wait until mid- to late February to file their tax returns in order to give the IRS time to reprogram its processing systems.

Some taxpayers – including those who itemize deductions on Form 1040 Schedule A – will need to wait to file. This includes taxpayers impacted by any of three tax provisions that expired at the end of 2009 and were renewed by the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act Of 2010 enacted Dec. 17.

Georgia tax forms are always received later, and will be placed in the tax area upon receipt.

Please contact Lori Lester at or 912 478-5032 or Virginia Thomas at 912 478-5117 if you have questions.
