I do my taxes with software so I don't even get a 1040 book anymore. I'll go to the library and pick one up.Is there any pitfalls of doing the taxes myself. She hasn't had to file taxes through 2000. There is no w-2's, only 1099-R's, plus interest. And she was alive all of 2001.No need to go to the library. Just point your browser to www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040.pdfAlso, most tax prep software provide copies of the official IRS instructions and some of the publications.

OF course, if she didn't have to file in 2000, there's a good chance she won't have to file a 2001 return either.Ira
