Black and white printing/copying is $0.10 per page. 

You may order other forms and publications from the IRS webpage or by calling 1-800-829-3676 Monday through Friday from 7 AM - 7 PM. The IRS will send them to your residence.  You may also have Minnesota forms sent to you by calling 651-296-3781 or 1-800-652-9094.
