Personal Tax -> Federal Individual Income Tax Return Forms
Form 1040 is the only form that will be used for the 2018 and later tax years. It replaces Forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ with one Form 1040 for all taxpayers.
Form 1040 on the IRS website
- This form uses a "building block" approach and allows taxpayers to add only the schedules they need to their tax return.
- The most commonly used lines on the prior year form are still on the form. Other lines are moved to new schedules and are organized by category. These categories include income, adjustments to income, nonrefundable credits, taxes, payments, and refundable credits.
- Many taxpayers will not need to complete any of the schedules.
Do you usually file a paper return - perhaps you should think about filing electronically. It is very easy to use tax software, and your tax return will be processed more quickly.
