Decline and fall
Since it's all but impossible to find the necessary forms and publications around town and there's no inclination here to invest time and effort in downloading and printing, a mail order was placed for IRS information. We used to get forms from the library, but now the process involves paying for photocopies, even if a desk is staffed and there's someone who knows the location of the materials. The barebones booklet mailed by the IRS doesn't even list many of the relevant forms; for this, it is necessary to go line. It's astonishing that the IRS no longer uses its quasi-governmental relative, the USPS; no; the fat brown envelope was delivered by UPS.
