(NEW YORK) -- More than ever, tax prep is going online, and with that comes changes to what you would normally receive in the mail.
"Certain things will no longer be in the mail," says Mary Beth Franklin of Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine. "If you're waiting for your IRS tax forms to arrive in the mail it's going to be a really long wait, because this is the first year that the IRS will not automatically mail forms to taxpayers."
Franklin says "you can still get printed copies if you want at participating libraries and post offices or you can go to IRS.gov and download them."
If you need help with these forms or with e-filing, your local library may be a good place to go.
Most taxpayers now file electronically, not through the mail -- just one reason why the IRS is also changing with the times.
