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.

At some Baltimore-area tax preparation offices, deadline day was proving anticlimactic. The big rush had come not on Tax Day but in early February, said Vince Williams, manager of Liberty Tax on East Coldspring Lane. The deadline for both federal and Maryland income taxes is Monday. "It's been a weird tax season," Williams said Monday morning. "Everyone started late because of the fiscal cliff. " Because of the last-minute tax deal to avert the fiscal cliff, the Internal Revenue Service was delayed in releasing some tax forms.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said he'll back John Delaney's bid to win in sixth Congressional District -- but he'd also like to see the candidate's income tax forms. "The fact is it is over, and people spoke," Miller said. "I'm going to support Mr. Delaney and I hope he is victorious. " Delaney thumped Miller favorite Rob Garagiola in yesterday's Democratic primary. The district was redrawn in October with Garagiola in mind, but his campaign faltered -- and never put an ad on TV. During the hotly contested primary race, Garagiola released his income tax forms for the past 10 years.

WASHINGTON -- Merry Christmas from the IRS.Your 1990 federal income-tax forms will be mailed to you Dec. 28, two days later than usual, "basically to move it away from the Christmas holiday, allow folks to enjoy it as long as they can before we throw a wet blanket on them," said Art Altman, IRS director of tax forms.The big winners from this year's tax-form changes will be about 4.5 million retirees who claim no itemized deductions. This year, for the first time, they can file an adapted short form, the 1040A, instead of the regular 1040 long form.

Bah, humbug. With Christmas such a recent memory that toys are still unassembled and puppies yet to be named, state and federal tax officials assembled yesterday to kick off the tax season.Beginning next week, 2 million residents of Maryland should receive their annual New Year's greeting from the government: 1993 tax forms.Officials said tax forms and rules are mostly the same as last year's and urged consumers to file their returns electronically."This year's forms are not significantly different than last year's," Paul Harrington, district director for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, said yesterday at a news conference.

Four times a year, Jennifer Proud Mearns does the right thing. She fills out the federal tax forms for the nanny who cares for her two young children.Then she tackles the state and city filings, and, finally, the forms to cover withholding from the nanny's paycheck. In all, four sets of paperwork each quarter."I'm already starting to get a headache thinking about filing at the end of this month," says Ms. Mearns, who works as a marketing executive in Manhattan. "It's a nightmare."A bill intended to streamline the process, which was passed by Congress this month and is awaiting the president's signature, will ease the burden, though many argue it does not go far enough.

As homeowners begin to prepare their 1991 tax returns they should take special note of new rules and forms if they have a home office, if they have an annual income of more than $100,000 or if they refinanced a mortgage last year.Those who operate a home-based business or profession, for instance, will have to disclose far more when calculating allowable office expenses on a new form tied to Schedule C.The homeowner with an adjusted gross income of more than $100,000 will face a change that limits the value of the time-honored deductions for mortgage interest and property taxes.

All Danielle Rowlette wanted to do was become Danielle Tate. But after taking a day off work and wasting nearly all of it in lines at the state Motor Vehicle Administration, she drove home disappointed — and still a Rowlette. It seems she'd filled out outdated name-change forms and brought the wrong documents to show officials. She went home to her new husband and complained, "I can't believe there isn't a website that can do as much of this as possible — I would pay almost anything not to deal with this.

Gov. Martin O'Malley released three years of tax forms Saturday morning, showing that since he became governor, he and his wife Catherine, a District Court judge, have made $300,000 each year on average. Much of the income is from O'Malley's $150,000 yearly salary as governor and his wife's roughly $117,000 salary as a judge. Their earnings increased significantly in 2008 when O'Malley began receiving $60,000 in annual Baltimore City pension payments from his two terms on the City Council and two terms as mayor.

On April 15 back then, the hours leading up to midnight took on a carnival-like feel. "Years ago, when there was only mailing, we'd have IRS people in the lobby helping people fill out forms," said William Ridenour, postmaster of Baltimore. "We'd have people coming in with a box of receipts doing their tax forms at 11 at night.

I 've always prided myself on my ability to count my family members. This is because I'm at the life stage where people come and go - I have two college students who often have different schedules. I also have a high school son who frequently stays after school for enriching activities to put on his college application resume, such as the Sherpa Knot-Tying Club, the Musical Instrument Disassembling Society and the Students for Cryptic Texting. Most nights I very quickly - in my head - assess who is going to be home for dinner, and I have a 100 percent accuracy rate.
