How to Get Forms

With the continued growth in electronic filing and to help reduce cost, the North Carolina Department of Revenue will no longer mail paper tax forms and instruction booklets with preprinted labels to individuals. If you still wish to use a paper form, the Department has several options available to help you obtain paper copies of individual income tax forms and instructions:

If you use computer software to prepare your income tax return, go to List of Approved Tax Forms of Software Developers to determine if the software being used has been approved by the Revenue Department. For an updated list of unapproved software developers, go to Taxpayer Forms Alert 2017. Computer-generated forms that cannot be processed in the same manner as the Department's forms will be returned to you with instructions to refile on an acceptable form.
