Federal tax forms available at the PHCA office

As reported in recent Post-Gazette and Tribune-Review articles, the IRS is no longer mailing out tax forms and booklets.  Tax forms are available at local libraries and post offices, or the offices of your local representatives.  The PHCA office also has a small supply of 1040 booklets and forms, and we can print out forms for you at no charge (although a small donation would certainly be appreciated).

We also have materials for the property tax/rent rebate.  The deadline to apply is March 1.  It’s been reported that many homeowners don’t know they’re eligible.  For more information, check the Pennsylvania Property Tax Relief page.

PHCA staff aren’t certified or qualified to help you fill out tax forms, but we do have information on places where you can go to get help.  The Allegheny County Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites are listed here. Some of the closest to Polish Hill are:
