2012 Tax Forms
New York State Tax Forms and Booklets
2012 New York State tax forms are now available on the 7th floor. As you face the Reference Desk, look to the right (beyond the large column) and you will see New York State tax forms/booklets in the periodical displayer.
Changes for 2012 NYS taxpayers include:
- Reminder: NYS tax form IT-150 Resident Income Tax Return (short form) was discontinued last year. All full-time NYS residents must use Form IT-201 to file and pay their taxes.
- Forms IT-2, Summary of W-2 Statements, IT-1099-R, Summary of Federal Form 1099-R Statements, and IT-1099-UI, Summary of Unemployment Compensation Payments have all been eliminated. Taxpayers must now include the state copy of certain federal forms with their return. For instance, taxpayers must include the state copy of any W-2 forms (Wage and Tax Statement) they receive.
- Taxpayers may enter only whole dollar amounts on income tax forms for tax years 2012 and beyond.
- The itemized deduction schedule has been moved from Form IT-201 to the new Form IT-201-D, Resident Itemized Deduction Schedule.
- Taxpayers must now enter information for each dependent for whom they claimed a dependent exemption on Form IT-201.

Federal Tax Forms and Booklets
While the NYS Library has received a few federal tax forms/booklets, most of the federal forms and booklets have been delayed due to the recent passage of the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA). Many of the tax changes in this act affect tax returns for 2012. "While the IRS worked to anticipate the late tax law changes as much as possible, the final law required that the IRS update forms and instructions, as well as, make critical processing system adjustments before it can begin accepting tax returns." This means that many printed and online forms and booklets have been delayed.
We will put Federal tax forms and booklets on the tables next to the periodical displayer with NYS tax forms as we receive them. (The few Federal forms and booklets that we have already received on now on those tables.) The IRS announced that it plans to open the 2013 tax filing season and begin processing individual income tax returns on January 30, 2013.
We have not yet received the federal reproducible forms collection.
