How to Order Federal Tax Forms

You can order up to 10 different tax forms and publications for the current year directly from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website, and the IRS will send those forms to you via regular postal mail. If you need forms and publications from previous years, many of those are available on the IRS website in digital format so you can download and print the ones you need.

Step 1

Go to the IRS form ordering page (See Resources).

Step 2

Enter a partial or full form number into the search box, then click the "Search" button.

Step 3

A list of all related forms will be returned. If you entered "1040" into the search box for example, the results list will show all related versions and schedules you may need.

Step 4

Put a check mark in the box next to each form you'd like to order, then click the "Add To Cart" button at the bottom of the screen.

Step 5

Follow the prompts to enter your name and mailing address to complete the order.


You can also order via telephone by calling (800) 829-3676.

You will receive two copies of each form ordered, and one copy of each publication. Delivery is usually seven to 15 days, but there can be delays in processing during the busy months of December and January.
