The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent 6,000 public libraries incorrect 1040X forms and instructions. You can tell if you have the incorrect forms by the revision date, which would read, “Rev. December 2006.” The correct forms have a revision date of February 2007.
25 copies of the correct 1040X forms and 10 copies of instructions are going out soon to those affected libraries and should arrive in March 2007. If libraries need more, they can order them. Please destroy all currently held copies of Form 1040X and its instructions.
From the IRS:
The Form 1040X (Rev. December 2006), Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, and Instructions for Form 1040X (Rev. December 2006) are being revised. Please immediately dispose/recycle the December 2006 revision of both the form and instructions. The revision date is located under the form number or title on each product.
A small quantity of the new February 2007 revision of both the form and instructions will automatically be sent to you in early March. They may arrive in separate shipments. No action on your part will be necessary. Please allow time to receive your shipment before re-ordering through normal channels.
The February 2007 revision will be posted to www.irs.gov. If necessary download and print copies.
The Internal Revenue Service apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused.
