The IRS has free publications to answer tax questions.

Publications on a variety of tax-related topics are available by phone or the Internet at www.irs.gov. From students to seniors, first-time homebuyers to landlords … everyone can find useful information in IRS forms and publications.

To find what you’re looking for, follow any one of these steps:

Access the IRS Web site. Click on the “Forms and Publications” resource page to find what you need. There’s a search feature you can use if you know the topic but not the number of the form or publication.

Read Publication 910. The Guide to Free Tax Services identifies the many IRS tax materials and services available. You’ll also find information about accessing tax materials, filing options, tax publications, tax education and assistance programs.

Call toll-free. If you know the name or number of the form or publication you need, call the toll-free Forms and Publications at 800-829-3676 to place your order.

If you still can’t find the information you need, call the IRS toll-free customer service line at 800-829-1040.
