Hi all,

In today's paper is a notice from the IRS that they are no longer mailing
out income tax forms or booklets to individuals automatically, as they have
done in years past.  This is because they say over 90% of individuals are
already filing electronically.

Below is a post of some related information:


        The Internal Revenue Service Alternative Media Center provided the
informa-tion on how to access accessible tax forms, instructions, and other
tax publications.
