Plainfielders will no longer find New Jersey tax forms stacked in huge piles by the pickup table near the entry.
Because the state is trying to save money (estimating they will save half a million dollars by not offering the forms through libraries and post offices -- I can attest to the waste, having helped to dispose of carton upon carton of leftover forms each year when I worked at the Plainfield Public Library).
What's a taxpayer to do?
All New Jersey tax forms are AVAILABLE ONLNE and can be printed out and mailed or filled out online for online filing (see forms and instructions here).
For those who have no computer or Internet access at home, reference librarians at the Plainfield Public Library will help patrons use the library's computers to access and print out the forms online.
Taxpayers may also call the state to request they be mailed directly at (609) 292-6400.
Federal tax forms will still be available at the Plainfield Public Library.
