KPR’s Points of View: Taxing the System

How does cutting taxes affect the wellbeing of our state’s budget?

On ThursdayJan 26, Kansas Public Radio’s Statehouse Bureau Chief Stephen Koranda will moderate a panel discussion from 7-8:30 PM in the Auditorium on the pros, cons, and philosophy behind the Kansas tax experiment.

Tax Forms + Handy Tax Resources

Lawrence Public Library is receiving fewer tax forms from the IRS every year. This tax season, we have three forms available in the library’s checkout lobby: the 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ.

But what about the rest? You can download forms from the IRS and print them at home. If you don’t have a computer or printer, come use one of ours!
