Use Your Computer

Through the Internet, you can access a wealth of free tax information on the IRS Web site. Taxpayers can check out links such as Forms and Publications to download necessary forms, instructions or publications; get the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) to get answers to questions
By Fax

Be careful when providing the IRS with your information while you are trying to information from them. Hire a tax professional if you are concerned you might inadvertantly disclose information you may not want the IRS to have at this time.
