We just received the notification email from the DoR regarding tax form orders. I made a brief post on the other Google communities, but I will provide you with the email in its entirety below. Please let me know if you have questions about this.

Dear Librarian,

Thank you for your service to Wisconsin taxpayers by making tax forms available at your location(s). You may now order your 2016 Wisconsin income tax forms. Please submit your order using our forms order system by December 9, 2016.

2015 Order History:
In an effort to reduce the cost associated with unused paper tax forms, please order the number of forms you distributed last year. Determine your 2016 tax form needs based on how many you used last year and reduce that number if you had forms left over.

We want to provide forms to taxpayers who need them and reduce waste associated with unused forms. With the growth of electronic filing and the availability of free filing options, last year, approximately 85% of Wisconsin individual income tax returns were filed electronically.

Details of your 2015 library orders are available on our website (

Tapping into my Boot Camp resources... The links in the Running a Facility presentation are dead. I'm looking for spreadsheets for a Capital Improvement Plan and a Building Maintenance checklist. Can you help again, Shannon?
