Secure tax forms

February 21, 1997

TAXPAYERS wanting a variety of federal tax forms and instructions beyond what banks and libraries stock can get that, and advice, at the Fallon Federal Building in Charles Center. As ++ always.

But they must go through security worthy of an airport. Keys and metal in the basket. Walk through a metal detector. Show ID with picture. All to pick up IRS forms in the lobby.

There may be good reason for security, i.e., the Oklahoma City bombing. Still, the Internal Revenue Service should be able to find ways to make the more exotic forms available for pickup without the security and invasion of privacy.
