Form 1040 Massively Revised, Forms 1040A and 1040EZ Axed

Taxpayers looking at last year's return to get help in filing this year's return are in for some surprises.

For tax year 2018, the Internal Revenue Service no longer provides Form 1040A or Form 1040EZ but, instead, uses a streamlined Form 1040 with up to six different schedules to attach, depending on types of income or credits claimed.  Other schedules usually attached to Form 1040, such as Schedule A Itemized Dedutions, still survive, but are revised to account for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The revised Form 1040 and related Schedules 1 through 6 can be viewed here.
